I-40 & Whitaker Pile-Up

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.

We've learned the firefighters in that rollover are all okay. The crash happened around 5:40 this morning and shut down the interstate for several hours. 

All lanes are back open and we'll continue to track what police police are discovering in this suspected hit and run accident as they release the information to us.
