Richmond Police detectives are making a second request for information from the public to help locate Daejshon-terrique Blizzard, the driver who struck and injured officers at a traffic stop last week.

At approximately 3:15 a.m., Tuesday, June 10, officers attempted to stop Blizzard for a moving violation in the 1600 block of Lamb Avenue. Blizzard turned the vehicle and struck the officers. Blizzard ran from the scene on foot.

The vehicle Blizzard was driving was impounded for the investigation. Detectives believe Blizzard is now possibly driving a white Ford Explorer.
