Around 7:20 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 19, an older Ford Focus was traveling south on Newbys Bridge Road in Chesterfield County. As the Focus approached Wedgemere Road, a dark-colored SUV attempted to turn onto Wedgemere Road directly in front of the Focus. A head-on crash occurred, injuring the driver of the Focus, but the SUV continued to move forward and left the scene.
A witness at the crash site recorded the license plate of the striking SUV, and officers soon determined the vehicle had been reported stolen from a home on Wedgemere Road.
