Driver Convicted In Fatal Hit & Run Released On Bond

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, VA- The Richmond man found guilty of felony hit-and-run in connection with a July wreck that left a 24-year-old bicyclist dead has been released on bond.

Elias Webb was released on $400,000 bond late Thursday night, pending a sentencing hearing May 16.

A jury Thursday recommended a three year sentence for Webb, after finding him guilty Wednesday. He faced a minimum of 10 years in prison.

It took the jury of four men and 10 women just less than three hours to reach a guilty verdict, but the jurors were unable to agree on a recommended sentence Wednesday and meet again Thursday to continue deliberations.

During the trial, Elias Webb took the stand in his own defense. Webb told the jury that although he'd had a glass and a half of wine with dinner the night of the accident, he was absolutely not impaired.

Kruszewksi was wearing reflective clothing and had lights on the bike she was riding. The prosecution said her body was found 109 feet from where she was struck by the SUV Webb was driving.
