Amarillo police now suspect a hit and run accident is to blame for a deadly I-40 pile up involving about 40 vehicles this morning.
They say nearly white out conditions, blowing snow and icy lanes were also factors in the wreck near Whitaker Road. Amarillo police would not release details on what kind of vehicle police may be looking for in this accident.
The man killed in the wreck is 65-year-old Jesse Moses of Amarillo. Crews transported at least two people to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A fire truck overturned as it approached the scene.
