(TULSA, Okla.) With heavy hearts, we are sad to announce the loss of 911 Dispatcher and Supervisor Mary Byers.

On the evening of October 5, 2021, Mary Byers was the victim of a fatal hit and run accident at Admiral and Utica.

Mary began her career as a 911 dispatcher on August 30, 1995 and promoted to 911 Supervisor in November 2017. 

Mary dedicated 26 years serving the citizens of Tulsa as a call taker, dispatcher, and supervisor.  She had an incredible work ethic and was always willing to lend a hand and lend an ear.

Over the years Mary worked all shifts with her latest assignment on the graveyard shift.

Mary was a happy and upbeat person who loved her family and was a good friend to many.  She had a keen sense of humor and was never afraid to speak her mind. She was a bright light to all those who knew her. She will be deeply missed by her 911 family, and we are forever grateful for her service.

The suspect in this case who caused the accident has turned himself in.
