    Israel Moreira-Sorto, 26, is wanted on a charge of intoxication manslaughter after a November 2013 chain-reaction crash on I-35E that killed Amanda Lizzio.

    Investigators with the Dallas County Sheriff Department are searching for a man wanted in a deadly collision in November 2013.

    Israel Moreira-Sorto, 26, is wanted on a charge of intoxication manslaughter.

    Authorities said Moreira-Sorto was responsible for a chain-reaction crash on northbound Interstate 35E just south of Oak Lawn Avenue early in the morning of Nov. 16, 2013.

    The crash killed Amanda Lizzio, who was outside her vehicle changing a flat tire at the time.

    Moreira-Sorto was driving a white Toyota Celica and has been found at fault for the crash that caused Lizzio's death, investigators said.

    Moreira-Sorto may have fled to El Salvador after the crash, and investigators are unsure if he has returned since.

    Anyone with information that could help is asked to call the Dallas County Sheriff Department's Vehicle Crimes Unit at 214-589-2343 or 214-589-2335.
