Suspected driver in hit and run death has a history of driving infractions

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The suspect in Lanie Kruszewski's death apparently has a history of tickets for driving infractions. Prosecutors plan to ask a grand jury on Monday to indict 30-year-old Elias Steven Webb, on felony hit-and-run. We've discovered Webb was pulled over 7 times by police in the last four-years for driving infractions.

Prosecutors tell us Elias Webb walked into the Richmond Police department on Thursday with defense attorneys and read from a statement. Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Learned Barry says in that statement, Elias Webb admitted he was driving the SUV that hit and killed a cyclist. Webb also expressed remorse.

24-year-old Kruszewski was struck around 10:20 Sunday night along River Road. The road is narrow, filled with heavy vegetation and has no shoulder.

An online search of court records reveals 11 traffic tickets in the last 4 years for Elias Webb. The tickets range from driving an un-inspected vehicle to speeding and disregarding a highway sign. He even had a reckless driving charge reduced in 2009 to improper control while driving. Webb works as an advertising account executive with the Richmond Times Dispatch.

Our repeated calls to Webb's attorney, Keith Marcus were not returned. Marcus told the Times Dispatch his client quote, "did not know he hit this woman."

Again, prosecutors plan to take their case before a Richmond grand jury Monday morning.
