Man Killed in Newport News Hit-and-Run
A man has died after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Newport News this weekend. The March 10, 2018 collision occurred around 3:30 AM at the intersection of Mercury Blvd. and Jefferson Ave. Police received a call and arrived on scene to find a man lying in the road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The initial investigations reveal that a 2013 white Nissan Altima was heading south on Jefferson Ave. when it struck the pedestrian and sped off. While there is no additional information available about the driver responsible, police encourage anyone with information to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
The Investigation Continues
The initial investigation is only the beginning. Police will continue to examine the details of the crash and work to discover everything they can about this incident. Chances are good that the person responsible for the wreck was driving drunk at the time of the crash. Given the time of day, it is safe to assume that they were likely under the influence of some kind of substance. We can only hope the victim’s family will receive some kind of information about the hit-and-run driver who caused this tragic accident.
Justice for Victims
Hit-and-run drivers are frequently caught on camera fleeing the scene of accidents. The odds are good that a traffic camera or local business caught the person responsible for this incident on film. With this technology being so prevalent these days, it is only a matter of time before police catch the person responsible. When that happens, the family of the victim should consider reaching out to an attorney for help seeking justice on behalf of their loved one.
