One person was injured in an afternoon car crash at the intersection of Seminary Road and N. Beauregard Street on Thursday afternoon. After the crash, at least two suspects from one of the cars fled the scene by commandeering another car.
The incidents occurred at around 12:15 p.m., and police helicopters were unsuccessful in finding the suspects. The victim of the hit-and-run suffered minor injuries, and the stolen vehicle was later recovered about a mile away along Sanger Avenue.
No arrests have been made and no suspect descriptions are available.
Police are also investigating the first vehicle that the suspects abandoned and said that the investigation is ongoing.
In August, Mayor Justin Wilson asked the public to help prevent a rising trend in vehicle-related thefts. As of August 11, there were 179 vehicle thefts, which is an increase of 34 over last year. There have also been 379 thefts from vehicles, which is an increase in 69 events over 2019.
“There has certainly been a big uptick,” Wilson said on Thursday night. “We have worked with the police department to increase visibility and try to bring those who are responsible for these crimes to justice.”
NOTIFICATION :: The Alexandria Police Department is investigating a carjacking in the 5000 block of Seminary Road. A helicopter was requested to assist. Expect police activity in the area.
