A tractor-trailer driver ran at least nine vehicles off the road, killing one driver, and wounded an officer in a violence spree that stretched 70 miles, police in Ft. Hancock, Tex., said. Denver Gerome Burrell, 30, of Walhalla, S.C., was arrested, but no charges had yet been filed, authorities said. The series of events on Interstate 10 in West Texas lasted less than an hour, said David Wells, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety. Investigators said that they did not know what prompted the rampage.
