A head on collision kills an Amarillo man early Sunday morning.

Police say 30 year old John Cook was traveling southbound in the northbound lane of traffic near the 3800 block I-27.

Just after 4 a.m., police say Cook was traveling over the Parker Street bridge when he collided head on with a tow truck carrying three passengers.  
Cook was pronounced dead at the scene and the people in the tow truck were sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

Traffic on northbound I-27 had to be re-routed for over four hours while the scene was cleared.

Police say alcohol may have been a factor. An autopsy for Cook has been order for this week.
