Police officials have impounded a tractor-trailer that they believe was involved in an accident on Interstate 40.
Officials believe that the tractor trailer sideswiped another rig causing it to hit the median and burst into flames. There was red paint on the portion of the truck that matched the area where it would have hit the other truck. Police have the truck in their possession while the investigation is pending.
The driver of the vehicle said that he did not strike the other truck, but witnesses have come forward and stated that they did. The man has been charged with leaving the scene of the accident and other charges are expected to be filed when the investigation finalizes.
