Durham police have identified the woman killed in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 40 east near exit 276 Wednesday morning.

They say she is Judy Gail Siegel, 57, of Chapel Hill.

Investigators say they believe Siegel was driving a Toyota in the far right eastbound lane of I-40 when she struck the side/tire of a tractor-trailer in the next lane.

The impact caused the Toyota to go off the right side of the highway, hit a guardrail and stop on the shoulder.

Investigators believe Siegel then got out of her vehicle and walked into the middle of I-40 East where she was struck by multiple vehicles. The first vehicle that hit her did not remain at the scene.

Police are looking for that vehicle.
