The Texas Department of Public Safety has learned new details about the suspect in an accident that left one man dead and need help from the public to find them.

It happened last week on FM 70. The victim was killed after a truck made a hard stop on the roadway and caused the vehicle behind it to swerve out of the way and into oncoming traffic, where it struck an SUV head on.

State troopers have narrowed down the description of the suspect and his vehicle. The suspect is described as a white male with thick sideburns. He was driving a lifted dark-blue or black Ford F-250 with a yellow parking tag hanging on the mirror.
