Pedestrian Identified in W. Main St. Fatality

June 9, 2017
The Richmond Police Department has identified the pedestrian who was struck and killed early this morning in the Fan District as Richard K. Priebe, 74, of the 100 block of Vine St.

At approximately 6:01 a.m., RPD officers were called to the 1700 block of W. Main St. for a report of a person down. When they arrived they found Priebe’s body lying in the roadway. They quickly determined he had been struck by a vehicle. The driver of the vehicle had remained at the scene.
The RPD Crash Team has determined that Priebe was jogging northbound in the roadway on Vine St.  He entered the intersection with W. Main St. without stopping and was struck by the vehicle travelling westbound on W. Main St.

Charges, if any, are still to be determined,
pending the completion of the investigation and consultation with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
