NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Two men are dead and other individuals were taken to the hospital after a hit-and-run on I-10.

Reports show an unidentified man was standing outside of a Kia on the interstate when a black Honda CRV hit him and fled the scene.
At the same time, investigators say a truck squeezed between the Kia and the guard rail, striking a Dodge Challenger that was also on scene. Subsequently, the vehicle then hit a 39-year-old man who was standing along the interstate.
Both the men outside the vehicles died from their injuries.
EMS took the occupants of the truck to a hospital where they are listed in stable condition.
