Chesterfield Police Seek Driver In Fatal Hit-And-Run

Posted: Updated:

STERFIELD, VA—Chesterfield County Police and the family of a Chesterfield pedestrian killed after being struck by two vehicles, one of which didn't stop, are asking anyone with information about the man's death to come forward.

Christopher Coleman, 20, was killed after being struck by two vehicles as he walked home from work the evening of Tuesday, December 4, 2012.

"He had aspirations," said Sherry Pettis, Coleman's aunt. "He was starting to work at Amazon. He was trying to save up to buy a car; we're just really hurting."

Police said Coleman was walking down the 6200 block Hopkins Road when he was struck by a 1999 Pontiac at approximately 5:30 p.m.

A second vehicle, a brown colored truck, then hit the victim and sped away, police said.

Police are asking for help to locate the driver and the vehicle that fled the crash scene.

"We're hoping that whoever is responsible for hitting him, that they would come forward and just come so that we can have some closure," said Pettis.

Anyone with information about this crash is encouraged to call (804) 748-1251. If you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crime Solvers at (804) 748-0660.
