Police have arrested the driver of the first truck, 22-year-old Michale Miyienda. He was located at a home on County Road 45. Miyienda was arrested for four outstanding traffic warrants as well as Intoxication Assault and Felony Hit and Run.
Tyler police were searching for a man after a hit-and-run collision on Friday night.
It happened around 8:30 p.m. at the intersection of Loop 323 and Van Highway. Police say that the driver of one truck rear-ended another truck. After the collision, the male driver drove away from the scene. The two people in the truck he hit were not hurt.
The truck that left the scene died about a mile down the highway, and that's when witnesses say that driver took off on foot.
"It was reported that one black male fled from the vehicle. And that's pretty much all we know now," said Officer Adam Colby with Tyler PD. "We have units headed over to the house that the truck is registered at, which is just down the road a ways."
Late Friday night, police were still combing the area where the truck was deserted. Because of the search, traffic along Van Highway was moving slowly.
