LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Alabama State troopers said one person has died after a wreck on I-65 and they are searching for a vehicle that left the scene. 

A witness said a dark-colored pickup truck ran an SUV off the road around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday near the Alabama/Tennessee state line.

Four people were in the 2002 GMC Envoy. Three people were hurt, including a 10-year old girl. The fourth person, 69-year old James Shaddy, Jr., was killed. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.

The other three victims, 44-year-old Jane Osgood, 10-year-old Grace Osgood and 72-year-old Mary Beck were treated and released.

The other vehicle involved in the wreck, a dark blue or black pickup, left the scene.

The passengers in the SUV were traveling home with a swim team based in Fayetteville, Tennessee. They were participating in a swim meet in Athens earlier that day.

The wreck is still under investigation. A witness to the wreck is offering a $1,000 reward to help find the driver of the vehicle that left the scene.

Troopers are looking for what witnesses described as a dark colored Chevy Silverado or Dodge Ram pickup which will have damage to the right side.

If you have any information regarding this vehicle, please contact your nearest State Trooper Post by dialing *HP on your cell phone, or call the Decatur State Trooper Post at 256-353-0631.
