CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA – Chesterfield County Police have charged a juvenile male driver in relation to a motor vehicle crash that occurred at about 9 a.m. on April 18, 2019, in the 5500 block of Courthouse Road.
In that crash, a Scion TC was traveling north on Courthouse Road when it lost control and crossed the median. The Scion TC was then struck by a Chevrolet Malibu traveling south. Following the initial crash, a southbound Nissan Versa struck the Chevrolet Malibu. The drivers of the Scion TC and the Chevrolet Malibu were transported to area hospitals with serious to life-threatening injuries.
The investigation indicates that the driver of the Scion TC, a 17-year-old male, was racing another vehicle just prior to the crash. That vehicle, which is described as a small, white vehicle with blue racing stripes, did not stop at the scene of the crash.
On Tuesday, July 23, the 17-year-old male was arrested and charged with reckless driving – racing; racing – causing injury to another person; and driving without a license. As of this morning, he was being held at the Chesterfield County Juvenile Detention Home.
Police continue to investigate this crash and seek the second racing vehicle. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Chesterfield County Police Traffic Safety Unit at 804-748-1785 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
