Deadly road rage scene gets second look

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The Richmond Police Crash Team returned to the scene of a deadly road rage case Thursday.

Investigators shut down three lanes of the Powhite Parkway near the Douglasdale Bridge to map out the scene using special 360-degree computer imagery equipment.

Two weeks ago, 24-year-old Chris Fisher lost control of his Honda and slammed into a bridge support after another driver ran Fisher off the road.

Police marked key points with paint on the day of the crash back on September 22. The equipment investigators used Thursday takes precise measurements. The road width, curbs and bridge pillar were all measured right down to the inch.

Sgt. John Bowman says once a scaled diagram is completed, it can be used for the criminal case as well as public safety.

"Recreating it if it goes to court and for traffic engineers to look at something in the road to improve," said Bowman.

Chris Fisher died Sunday. A private memorial service was held Wednesday in Midlothian.

Police say he was run off the road by a man driving a red pickup truck. That driver is still on the run.

Sgt. Bowman says they've received a few helpful Crime Stoppers tips, but would like to hear from more witnesses. If you can help, call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
