Virginia State Police are investigating a hit-and-run that occurred on Route 258 in front of the Southampton Mobile Home Park in the early morning hours of Sunday. This information comes from Deborah Cox, a spokeswoman for the Virginia State Police.
Initially, Virginia State Trooper S.W. Johnson was assisting deputies with a large crowd that gathered for a party at a residence located off of Route 258. While patrolling the area, Trooper Johnson was notified that a female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle at approximately 12:10 a.m. The vehicle left the scene, and the 25-year-old female victim was transported to Southampton Memorial Hospital with minor injuries.
