Va. police seek Sunday I-95 hit-and-run driver
Virginia State Police are seeking the public's help in finding the motorist who struck and seriously injured an elderly man Sunday morning near Springfield.
Shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday, two vehicles collided in the southbound landes of Interstate 95 just south of exit 166, just south of Springfield in Fairfax County, authorities said.
One of the drivers, a 73-year-old man from Franklin, Va., was standing near his blue Ford Taurus following the crash when a passing vehicle struck him and his car at about 4:15 a.m., according to a state police press release.
After striking the man and his Taurus, the motorist -- who was believed to be in a large sedan or a small SUV -- failed to stop and left the scene, according to the state police.
The vehicle sustained significant damage to its right side and may be missing its passenger side mirror and passenger side molding, according to the state police.
The driver of the Taurus was taken to Fairfax Inova Hospital with serious injuries.
The state police ask anyone who may have seen the crash or who may be familiar with the hit-and-run vehicle to contact them at 703-803-0027 or e-mail Area48@vsp.virginia.gov.
