Police did not immediately identify the motorist killed in the wreck shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday on westbound Interstate 70 near Troy in Madison County.

Police say the car's driver apparently lost control of his Chevrolet Impala and ended up stopping sideways on the interstate. Investigators say that's when a tractor-trailer clipped the car's front, spinning it several times before a second semi rig hit the car's passenger side.

Police say the driver of the first tractor-trailer fled the scene and they are searching for the driver. The second semi rig came to rest on its side in a ditch.
