Hit-and-run sends car on 40-foot deadly drop

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - A deadly accident on I-20/59 near the BJCC was also a hit-and-run on Sunday morning.

Birmingham police say a car was knocked off the interstate falling some 40-feet. The driver was killed. It happened around 6:30 a.m.

Witnesses tell police the other driver never stopped.

Police say a witness tried to chase the other driver but then stopped to help the victim.  "Basically witnesses are saying the car ran up too fast, fishtailing and hit the car," says Sergeant Frank Majors with the Birmingham Police Department. "The suspect vehicle continued to go."

The witnesses did get a description on the other driver and car. They are looking for a young, black woman in her twenties. She was driving a '08 or ‘09 black Chevy Trailblazer with heavy front end damage and a ‘God Bless America' tag on the back.
