A Chattanooga Police Department Photo by Craig Joel shows scenes from the multiple fatality wreck at Exit 11 in Ooltewah.

The driver of the semi-truck that plowed through seven vehicles and killed six people in a wreck on Interstate 75 in June has been added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's Top 10 Most Wanted list. 

Benjamin Brewer, 39, has been wanted since Monday, when a Hamilton County grand jury indicted him on six counts of vehicular homicide, four counts of reckless aggravated assault, driving under the influence of narcotics, speeding and making false reports about his duty status. 

But authorities in London, Ky., and Chattanooga have been unable to find Brewer and saidWednesday that they didn't know where he was. 

Brewer is a Caucasian male with brown hair and brown eyes, according to TBI. He stands five feet seven inches and weighs approximately 190 pounds. 

Anyone with information about Brewer's whereabouts is urged to call the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation at 1-800-824-3463

There is a $1,000 reward for information leading to his arrest, according to TBI. 

Allegations of Brewer's misconductdrug use and driving history surfaced quickly after the June 25crash, and both Brewer and the company he drove for have, so far, been sued twice by citizens involved in the wreck.

Brewer was on duty for about 50 consecutive hours in the three days leading up to the June 25crash, according to a preliminary report released Monday by the National Transportation Safety Board. And he'd driven for 15 consecutive hours before crashing in Chattanooga, according to the report.
