A Winston-Salem man was killed in a hit and run on the interstate early Monday morning.

Miguel Aquino, 41, was driving a Chevy van on Interstate 40 west about 1:30 a.m. between Harper Road and the Davie County line, the Highway Patrol said.

He went off the road on the left and hit a guardrail, then drove back across the road and went off the road to the right, the Highway Patrol said.

Aquino got out of the van after the wreck and was then hit by an unknown vehicle driving west on Interstate 40, according to officials. Aquino died at the scene of the crash from his injuries.

The crash closed Interstate 40 for about five hours.

Investigators are asking for assistance identifying the driver who hit Aquino. Anyone with information on the wreck is asked to call the Highway Patrol at 336-761-2441.
