From Richmond Police:

At approximately 7:47 p.m. Monday, officers responded to the 3100 block of Bute Lane for the report of a bicyclist hit.
The victim stated he was riding bikes with his children when he came to an intersection and stopped. The victim stated he noticed a blue Ford Mustang that was driving in an unsafe manner.

There was an exchange of words between the victim and the driver of the Mustang. The Mustang pulled off, turned around, and started to head toward the victim and his family who were attempting to cross the intersection.

The driver of the Mustang then struck him with his vehicle’s passenger side mirror. The victim attempted to get back on his bicycle and was struck a second time by the driver. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The vehicle is described as a blue Ford Mustang with the passenger side mirror missing. The driver is described as a black male. A photo of the vehicle is attached.

The original account from Facebook user Emily Bruno:

This car was used to intentionally hit a cyclist! On 4/2/18, my friend was out riding bikes with his kids when this car ran a stop sign, nearly hitting their family. Words were exchanged, the driver purposely side-swiped my friend (loosing (sic) the passenger side mirror in the process), then turned around and hit/rammed him straight on with the car before driving off. My friend is hurt and his kids are traumatized. Police have been notified but we don’t have a plate number. PLEASE keep a look out for a car like this that is missing the side mirror. The assault happened in the Carillon neighborhood. If you see this car, get a picture and the plate number then call Officer K Johnson at the Third Precinct, (804) 646-1211.

The City of Richmond and Mayor Levar Stoney’s administration has declared a State of Emergency for the city due to what officials call “credible threats” of violence related to planned protests leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20th.

The declaration follows Governor Ralph Northam’s declaration of a statewide State of Emergency, which allowed the administration to send National Guard troops and State Troopers to Washington, D.C. to help with security, logistics, and other immediate needs following the insurrection at the Capitol last week.

The city’s declaration opens up funds for emergency use and was voted into effect unanimously by City Council Monday evening.

The Richmond Police Department’s Special Operations Division-Traffic Crash Team, with the assistance of the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office, has made an arrest in connection to the double fatal crash that occurred on Thanksgiving Day.

Ryann Daniels was captured yesterday afternoon by deputies in Currituck County. At approximately 1:30 p.m., the deputies responded to a report of the wanted subject at a residence. As the deputies approached the residence, Daniels fled on foot into a wooded area on the backside of the property. A K-9 unit, accompanied by several deputies, tracked Daniels and took him into custody.

Daniels has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter. His booking photo is attached. He is currently being held at the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office detention center on a $500,000 bond.

At approximately 7:54 p.m. on Thursday, November 26, 2020, Daniels was driving a pick-up truck westbound on Brookland Park Boulevard, disregarded a red light and entered the intersection of Chamberlayne Avenue – striking two vehicles, including an SUV, that were traveling southbound on Chamberlayne Avenue.

All three vehicles then collided with three vehicles that were stopped in the eastbound lanes of Brookland Park Boulevard.

Karen Murphy and Kevin Hancock were in the SUV. Murphy was pronounced dead at the scene. Hancock was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

“It is always tragic losing a loved one, but especially on a holiday centered on time spent with family. We want to send the victims’ families our sincerest condolences during this difficult time,” said Richmond Police Chief Gerald Smith. “Our crash team investigators have been working diligently to apprehend the suspect. I would like to thank them and the Currituck County Sheriff’s Office for their tremendous work.”

The crash remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call RPD Crash Team Investigator D. Olson at (804) 646-1664 or contact Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000. All Crime Stoppers methods are anonymous.
