Virginia State Police is asking for the public’s help with locating the suspect vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal crash in Warren County Tuesday night (Oct. 30).

Shortly before 8:25 p.m. Tuesday, two pickup trucks were traveling together eastbound on Interstate 66. When one of the two pickups experienced a flat tire, both pickups pulled off to the right shoulder at the 5-mile marker. While working on the front, driver’s side tire, the driver of that silver Chevrolet pickup truck was struck by an eastbound tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer did not stop and continued east on I-66.

The only description witnesses could provide of the tractor-trailer was that it was white in color. The crash occurred right at the highway sign announcing Exit 6 for Winchester in one mile.

The adult male who was struck died at the scene. State police are still in the process of notifying his next of kin.

Those in the other pickup were not injured in the crash.

Anyone who may have seen the crash or can provide information about the white tractor-trailer is asked to please call the Virginia State Police at 540-829-7766 or email at [email protected]

The crash remains under investigation.
