    ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - How do you hide a 30-ton, 60-foot-long piece of evidence? That's what Florida highway troopers want to know after searching since Monday for a truck driver and his tractor-trailer wanted in a fatal hit-and-run.........

    Mariah King, 19, and Vincent Mathews, 24, were killed Monday evening while changing a flat tire on the shoulder of the Florida Turnpike in St. Lucie County, the Florida Highway Patrol said in a news release.

    Sergeant Mark Mysocky said there were no witnesses to the crash but troopers retrieved front and back photos of the empty big rig barreling through a nearby toll plaza......

    The highway patrol described the tractor as a dark colored 2006 Peterbilt with right front damage with an Illinois license tag of P769293 and a truck number 13335 on the left and right front of the vehicle. The trailer is a Benson flatbed with an Illinois license tag of T495080.

    According to the article and video, no arrest has been made as yet for the deaths of these 2 young people.

    The company/driver is apparently claiming the couple had not pulled far enough off the road to change the tire.

    The driver is Robert Bates who works for Mercer Transport Co. of Louisville, Ky.
