Driver killed 3 men trying to change tire alongside I-635, abandoned 13-year-old passenger at scene, police say


Dallas police are searching for the driver who hit an SUV on the shoulder of Interstate 635 early Sunday, killing three people and injuring two more before abandoning his 13-year-old passenger to run from the scene.


The victims were traveling east when they stopped to change a flat tire in the 3200 block of Interstate 635, just west of the Dallas North Tollway, Dallas police said.


Around 3:30 a.m., a pickup truck fatally struck three men who'd been working on the tire, then hit the SUV, injuring a man and woman inside.


The truck's driver, who hasn't yet been publicly identified, fled the crash on foot, leaving a 13-year-old boy behind.

The teenager was reunited with his mother at the hospital, police said.


When the suspect is arrested, he will be charged with manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid, according to police.
