Contact Shawn at (804) 943-3815 if you have any info or want to confess:
At approximately 8PM tonight on the 1300 block of N 27th St, my friend’s van was involved in a hit-and-run.
I ran outside in time to see the vehicle, but I couldn’t identify the plate. It’s a dark-colored sedan (almost certainly black), and it’s now missing a tail light from the impact of the incident.
The vehicle was *reversing* from a parked position, so it wasn’t a side swipe or anything. They were definitely parked on our block for at least a little while. I hit up my neighbors, and no one recognizes the car by description.
The police have been notified, and they have placed the vehicle’s description on their watch list.
I’m passing the word along in case anyone else in Church Hill sees a vehicle matching this description. If the driver comes forward to claim responsibility and offer their insurance information, my friend is willing to drop the hit-and-run charges (a felony offense if the damage is over $1000)
