CONROE, Texas – DPS State Troopers say a hit-and-run driver caused a wreck on Interstate 45 Friday evening that tied up traffic throughout The Woodlands and all the way into Harris County.

The man reportedly got into a minor accident in Shenandoah then raced away from the scene. He got on I-45 North near Research Forest and hit another car.

Then, he jumped out of his moving truck right before it slammed into the concrete divider.

He was airlifted to the hospital in critical condition. No word on the other people’s conditions.
