Accident On I-20 Leaves One Man Dead

An East Texas man is dead after a five vehicle early morning accident on I-20. Authorities are now seeking the person they believe is responsible.
 The accident happened Monday morning in the eastbound lane of Interstate 20, about one-mile past the Barber Road exit in Smith County.
Officials said the person they are looking for was driving a white Lincoln. The Lincoln hit a Mercedes in its lane, sending the Mercedes into oncoming traffic. The Mercedes hit another vehicle. An SUV tried to avoid the Mercedes, lost control and travelled into the oncoming lane. The SUV was struck broadside by a car driven by 27-year-old Stephen David Kapphahn of Mineola. He died a short time later at ETMC in Tyler.
