A man in York County was arrested and charged after allegedly striking a VDOT subcontractor on the side of Interstate 64 on the afternoon of Sept. 19. The man has been charged with drinking and driving and will therefore require a DUI defense when he faces a Virginia court. He is currently in police custody at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail against no bond, though it is unclear whether he has retained criminal defense counsel at this time.
According to the report, witnesses at the scene reported the man was driving an SUV on I-64 when the accident occurred. Apparently, traffic was congested as a result of construction in certain lanes, so the accused individual drove around the cones, proceeding down a lane that was still under construction. The 30-year-old driver then reportedly struck a subcontractor before re-entering the interstate and fleeing the scene.
