Pedestrian dies after apparent hit and run (UPDATED) / October 07, 2019

Virginia State Police are investigating a fatal hit-and-run in the Clover area on Friday night after a male pedestrian was struck by a vehicle and died at the scene.

The man who was killed has been identified as Josh B. Mitchell, 73, of Randolph. He was lying in the roadway when he was struck, according to Virginia State Police spokesperson Corinne Geller.

The driver, a 60-year-old woman from Gladys, has not been identified by State Police. She was driving a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu when the incident occurred at 7:50 p.m. Friday, on Clover Road less than a mile south of Cosby Road.

Halifax State Trooper D.N. Clark said Sunday that the fatality involved a possible hit-and-run. According to Geller, the driver of the Malibu left the scene upon striking the pedestrian, but returned a short time later and was questioned by State Police.

“The investigation is still ongoing and there haven’t been any charges made at this time, yet,” said Clark.

Clover Fire Department EMS responded to the scene, said Chief Bert Martin, where the victim was found dead from his injuries.

Authorities are continuing to piece together what happened. State Police crash reconstruction officers came out to scene to take part in the investigation.

This story will be updated.

How do we know the man laying on the road was not already dead?


Very good point, wht?. Generally, people don't lay in the road unless something has already happened. Not that I am making excuses for a hit-and-run...just pointing out that you have a valid point.
