A Chesterfield County man has been charged in a hit-and-run incident that injured a highway worker in October 2018 near a Powhite Parkway toll plaza in Richmond.

Travis E. Drennan, 35, of the 12000 block of Bellaverde Circle, was taken into custody Friday and charged with felony hit-and-run driving and reckless driving, Richmond police said.

Police said they responded at 12:47 a.m. on Oct. 26, 2018, to a report of accident on southbound Powhite Parkway, a short distance beyond the toll booth plaza. Responding officers found a highway worker in the road who had been struck by a vehicle while working.

The victim, whose identity was not released, was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Investigators say Drennan was driving the car that struck the victim and that he fled the scene, headed south toward Chesterfield.

Police reminded motorists of Virginia’s "Slow Down/Move Over" law, which requires drivers to give safe clearance to first responders and crews working along a roadway.
