AMARILLO, TX. - Local DPS officers have now closed a case as they linked information together surrounding a body found along I-40.

A 2003 GMC pickup driven by 33 year old Ruben Granadoz from Wellington, struck and killed Derrick Leonard Clark.  

Granadoz did not stop and ended up abandoning the vehicle approximately 6 miles away near US 60 & FM 2373.  

Clark was 37 years old and from Greenwood, Mississippi.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Granadoz was located later that day and arrested for failing to stop and render aid.
