HOWARD COUNTY - The Department of Public Safety is investigating a hit and run that left a Big Spring man dead.

56-year-old James Alford Simmons, Junior, died Tuesday after a weekend collision on his motorcycle near his home in Big Spring.  

Troopers say Simmons was hit from behind when he was riding his Harley-Davidson west on Interstate 20 about 10 miles outside of the city at the time of the accident.  

Investigators say they caught up to the suspect in Sweetwater.  

Troopers tell NewsWest Nine no arrests have been made, and they will turn over all their evidence to the Howard County District Attorney, once their investigation is complete.
