No arrests after multiple cars struck in West End hit-and-run

Alexandria Police continue to investigate a three-vehicle hit-and-run in the West End that downed a tree into the north bound lanes of N. Beauregard Street and Quantrell Avenue.

At around 4 p.m. on May 1, a 2013 silver Dodge Ram was found abandoned at the intersection near a 1995 Chevrolet G20 van it had just struck, knocking off the G20s front passenger side tire, according to a search warrant affidavit.

While investigating the scene, the driver of a 2017 white Honda Civic drove up and told police that the driver of the Ram hit his car at the intersection of N. Beauregard and N. Armistead Street — a block away.

Police found the owner of the Ram, who said that she was allowing a friend’s son to drive it, and that he lives less than a mile from where the crashes occurred, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Police then interviewed the friend’s son, who said that he was not driving that night, but that his friend “Leonardo” was driving the Ram back to his house, “because (the friend’s son) had been drinking alcohol and was self-admittedly intoxicated,” according to a search warrant affidavit.

The friend’s son said that Leonardo lived in an apartment complex nearby on Seminary Road, although the leaseholder of the home the friend’s son lives in told police that no one named Leonardo had ever been in her residence, according to a search warrant affidavit.

No arrests have been made in connection to the incident, which remains under investigation.
