LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - A passenger in a deadly crash Sunday night is accused of running from the scene, failing to help a victim and lying to police.

Adam Ball, 27, of Louisville is accused of failing to render aid to the driver who died in the fiery wreck. He's also charged with alcohol intoxication, leaving the scene of an accident, giving a false name and third-degree terroristic threatening.

The wreck happened around 9:30 p.m. Sunday on the Gene Snyder Freeway near the Bardstown Road exit, involving a car and a semi truck.

Police say Ball was found hiding in a tree line near the crash scene, highly intoxicated and smelling of alcohol. He also allegedly gave officers the alias of William King when talking to them.

Ball was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

Police believe the person driving the car was exiting the freeway when it hit the tractor trailer, getting trapped underneath and catching fire.

The driver died at the scene. Police say the truck driver was unhurt and that Ball suffered minor injuries.
