Two pedestrians injured in hit-and-run
On October 18, 2020, at approximately 10:07PM, deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the 2100 block of Peppers Ferry Rd (Rt. 114) for a motor vehicle crash. Upon arriving, deputies located two pedestrians, a female and a male in a wheelchair, who had been struck by a vehicle, which had fled the scene. Both had serious injuries and were flown to Roanoke Memorial Hospital for treatment.
Deputies believe an early 2000’s model; Chevrolet brand truck or SUV may have been involved and should have extensive damage to the front passenger side. At the time of the incident, the vehicle would have been traveling from Christiansburg toward Pulaski.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing and anyone who may have been in the area near the time, observed the crash, or saw a vehicle matching the description afterward is urged to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 540-382-6915 or NRV911 at 540-382-4343 and ask to speak with a deputy.
