RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Highland Springs man charged in a deadly hit and run accident will be back in court today.

Brian Smith is accused of killing 35-year-old Linwood Miles on Interstate 295 last fall.

At the time, police say Miles was working on his broken down car when Smith hit him, and then drove off.

We could find out later if Smith will stand trial or opt for a plea deal.
