Police investigate Buford Road hit-and-run

The Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program has been asked for its help to solve a hit-and-run crash.

At about 12:30 in the afternoon of Friday, Oct.12, a driver was traveling south on Buford Road.  According to the police report, the vehicle faced a green light as it crossed Forest Hill Avenue.  A second car made a right turn through a red light from Forest Hill Avenue onto Buford Road directly in front of the first vehicle.  The two vehicles collided, sending the first vehicle headlong into a car waiting in a turn lane in the northbound direction on Buford Road. While the airbag in the first vehicle did activate, there were no serious injuries.  The vehicles sustained heavy damage.

Normally this would be a basic crash investigation.  Unfortunately, the second vehicle left the scene and continued to travel south on Buford Road.  The officer investigating the crash said witnesses gave the description of the hit-and-run vehicle as a maroon or red car.
