Marine Corps Veteran Killed by Hit-and-Run Driver at Gas Station

A 25-year-old man from Oklahoma who was struck and killed by a car at a gas station in Orange was identified Sunday by the Orange County Coroner's Office.

Dylan Moran, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was hit by a vehicle at a Valero gas station in Orange on Friday at about 1 a.m., according to the coroner's office. He died at the scene.

Moran was visiting California on business as an independent consultant for hospitals and clinics. When he arrived, he called his mother and left her a voicemail to tell her he was safe. Not long after -- on the day before Veterans Day -- the Marine veteran was struck and killed. 

"Please help me find the person who did this, please," his mother Elizabeth DeGeeter said. 

The crash is being investigated by the Orange Police Department. They're looking for an older model dark colored two-door Chevrolet Camaro that hit him. A second vehicle may also have been involved, according to police. 

Anyone with information regarding the fatal hit-and-run is asked to contact the Orange Police Department at 714-744-7444.
