SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - A general contractor and his work partner, both military veterans, claim a driver hit their work truck and kept going Saturday afternoon in Suffolk.
Ron Winkle is offering a $5,000 reward for information about the hit-and-run crash involving his pickup truck and what he calls a truck with a "dump trailer."
The incident occurred along Interstate 664 in Suffolk Saturday.
"Out of nowhere, a dump trailer hit us and threw us over the side and we rolled down below. It happened about 12:15. He hit the jersey wall but he kept going," Winkle told WAVY.com.
He said the truck was silver with a white front and green and yellow markings.
"That's all we can remember," said Winkle. "There were two of us in the vehicle, and we were wearing our seat belts thank God, and we were glad to be alive."
Winkle says he and his co-worker were left dazed and shaken up, but suffered no broken bones.
"Now I just need people who saw it to just report it. I mean, I know people don't want to get involved, but that's why I'm offering $5,000 cash."
If you saw the crash, call Virginia State Police at 757-424-6800.
