Police News Flash_Traffic Alert1

On Dec. 29 at approximately 11:13 p.m., a single-vehicle crash occurred in the 7800 block of Richmond Road between Chickahominy Road and School Lane. Preliminary investigation revealed that Scott Allen McKinney, 46 of Lancaster was driving a Cox work van west on Richmond Road when the vehicle went off the right side of the roadway striking two utility poles. This caused the roadway to be closed due to downed lines. McKinney was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and was transported to Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News where he was treated and released for non-life threatening injuries.

McKinney was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, refusal and reckless driving. He is currently being held at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail on a $2,500 secured bond. Media seeking an arrest photo should contact the VPRJ.

Per Dominion Energy, Richmond Road is not expected to reopen until this afternoon. VDOT is also on scene and has provided some signage; however drivers are encouraged to avoid this area if possible.

The traffic crash remains under investigation.
