Funeral for victim in hit-and-run accident

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A funeral is scheduled Friday for the Hopewell man killed in a hit-and-run accident nearly a week ago on Interstate 295.

The crash happened last Saturday morning.

35-year-old Linwood Miles pulled over to work on his broken-down vehicle.

The Times-Dispatch reports he had just contacted his fiancee on his cell phone when, police say, Brian Smith struck him and then drove off.

Smith is in jail without bond.

He makes a court appearance in December.

Friday's funeral for Miles is at 1 p.m. at Arlington Road Church of Christ in Hopewell.
