GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport Police have released the name of a man who admits responsibility for a weekend hit and run accident on Interstate 10.

Timothy Hughes, 32, of Mobile, Alabama is charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Hughes turned himself in to police after seeing an interview with the victim on WLOX-TV.

According to police, Hughes was driving the 18-wheeler that hit 61-year-old Judith Cuevas's SUV early Saturday morning. They say the truck struck Cuevas's Tracker, knocked it down an embankment and into the woods, where it landed upside down. Cuevas was trapped for hours before getting out and going for help.
