Assistance Needed to Identify Accident Victims

The Richmond Police Department needs the public’s assistance in identifying the victims of a fatal one-car accident today.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., a 1987 red Toyota pickup truck was westbound in the 5000 block of Warwick Avenue near Alaska Drive.

Three Hispanic males were occupying the vehicle. One died at the scene and the other two were taken to VCU Medical Center with injuries that are considered life threatening.

Little identification was found at the scene so the Department needs the public’s help in identifying the victims so next of kin can be notified.

Anyone with information on the truck or the occupants is asked to call the Hispanic Tip Line at 239-4209 or Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
