Local police suspect a hit and run is behind a deadly 40-vehicle pile up they're investigating on I-40. APD tells us a driver involved in this accident may have fled the scene. But they have not revealed details about any vehicle they may be searching for.
You may remember the nearly 80-car pile up that happened not far from the same stretch of I-40 in December. TxDOT spokesman Paul Braun tells us there's nothing wrong with the section of I-40. He says it meets all safety codes, but he does point out both crash sites are bad areas for blowing snow.
