LEWISVILLE, Texas (AP) - Police say a driver accused of crashing into another vehicle on Interstate 35E in the Dallas suburb of Lewisville fled the scene by jumping into Lewisville Lake.

Witnesses told authorities they saw the man jump from the highway bridge over the lake late Sunday night, hit the water below but never saw him again.

Police searching the area tell Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT (https://cbsloc.al/1M23jC1 ) they’re not sure if the man safely escaped the scene or drowned.

Firefighters in a boat have been assisting in the search.
