Police have been called to a Tulsa DHS group home more than 200 times since 2009, including reports of sexual assaults, fights and runaways, records show.

An 11-year-old boy who died Sunday after being struck by a car was at least the second resident to die after running away from the facility, a Tulsa World review shows. A 16-year-old girl died in 2009 after running away from the home and being struck by a train.

Authorities continue to search for a pickup that left the scene Sunday after striking Christopher Seaton, 11, on Interstate 44 near 24th West Avenue.
