Man Arrested in Weekend Hit and Run Death
A man is in custody in connection with a fatal hit and run accident on I-295 early Saturday morning near Route 156 and Airport Drive.
35 year-old Linwood Miles, Jr. was standing outside of his car when he was hit. He died at the scene.
Just before eight that night, Virginia State Police were called by a person who had spotted a car with front-end damage that investigators had been searching for. Troopers and Henrico Police arrested 33 year-old Brian Smith. His 1997 Mercury Villager van, with significant front-end damage consistent with the crash, was parked at his home on North Juniper Street in Highland Springs.
He’ll be arraigned this morning, charged with felony hit-and-run.
