This week, the Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers program needs the community’s help to solve an unusual hit-and-run case that occurred on Tuesday, Sept. 14.
At approximately 2:30 p.m., a man was riding a motorcycle north on Harrowgate Road and pulled into the lane to turn right onto Route 10, also known as Iron Bridge Road.
While traveling in the turn lane, a tan-colored van abruptly pulled into the same turn lane, forcing the motorcyclist to firmly apply his brakes. The cyclist pulled beside the van and verbally confronted the driver. The driver of the van argued back and then used the corner of his van to push over the motorcyclist before driving away east on Route 10.
The driver of the van was described as a black male with gray or partially gray hair. Investigators received a partial license plate from the victim and witnesses, but are still looking for the actual vehicle.
