#VSP Seeking Tips for Hit-&-Run Vehicle in #Rockingham County
Virginia State Police Trooper M. Salladay is investigating a hit-and-run crash involving a bicyclist in Rockingham County. The crash occurred September 16, 2019 at 2:23 p.m. on Route 276 (Cross Keys Road) at 50 feet north of Route 668 (East Timber Ridge Road).
A bicyclist was traveling south on Rt. 276 when it was struck from behind by a car.
The bicyclist, a 72-year-old adult male of Harrisonburg, Va., was flown to UVA Medical Center in Charlottesville for treatment of serious injuries. The bicyclist was wearing a helmet.
The car, possibly a red Nissan Sentra, did initially stop at the scene and its driver exited the vehicle. But the driver and vehicle left before law enforcement arrived on scene. The hit-and-run car should have front-end passenger side damage. The driver was described as a white female with blonde hair, wearing a dark-colored shirt and skirt with a leopard-skin print.
The crash remains under investigation.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call Virginia State Trooper M. Salladay at 540-434-8593 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

I'm amazed Rockbridge didn't score higher- their curriculum is one of the toughest (and most ridiculous) I've ever encountered. I say Rockingham is #1- John Kidd set a standard we still get today. I'm curious as to how these results were figured- based on reviews? If so, why weren't we told/encouraged to participate? One district with a few schools going against 90 some schools in another district?
I'm lost. Many of the kids dont know how to read a clock in High School, and many are not writing cursive. Isn't there something wrong with that picture?
