Wichita Falls Police said one man was killed after an early morning accident on Tuesday.

The accident happened on I-44 southbound at Old Iowa Park Road just after 5:00a.m. 

Police have identified with victim as 76-year-old Ramon Hernandez.  He was from Wichita Falls.  His body has been sent to Tarrant County Medical Examiner for autopsy.

Crash investigators are looking into the three accidents that occurred from this incident.  They believe it was caused by large boulders being on the roadway.  The investigators are not sure how the bounders got on the road in the first place.

Officers closed all southbound lanes of traffic from Northwest Freeway to just past Old Iowa Park Road while they investigated the crash.  Traffic was allowed back on the road about four hours after the incident.
