HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- State police are asking for the public's help in a hit-and-run crash that critically injured a tow truck driver along Interstate 95 in Henrico County Saturday evening.

Troopers were called to the crash on northbound I-95 north of the Parham Road exit just after 5:20 p.m., according to Sgt. Keeli L. Hill with Virginia State Police.

"The preliminary investigation reveals that the wrecker driver was assisting a disabled 2019 Newmar RV located on the right shoulder when he was struck by a vehicle," Hill said. "The striking vehicle did not stop and may have continued northbound I-95 or took the exit to I-295."

Officials said that vehicle, of which there is no description, may have damage to its right front side.
