TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama State Troopers have identified the victim of a fatal hit-and-run accident near Tuscaloosa.

The accident took place Friday morning in front of the rest area on Interstate 20/59 southbound.

Troopers say a pedestrian, 78-year-old Carlos Benavidez of Houston, Texas, was killed in the accident.

Troopers are trying to find the vehicle involved in the accident and say they have reason to believe that it may be a tan or gold Ford F150 or Ford Expedition. They say it may have damage to the front grille and headlight area along with damage to the right rear tail-lamp.
