Car drags man for 4 miles after crash

The driver of a car ran over a man and dragged him for 4 miles before another motorist notified him of the man under his vehicle in James City County Saturday. The drivers of two cards were racing in the 8900 block of Richmond Road around 3 p.m. Saturday. A 31-year-old Lanexa man driving a 1997 Volkswagen lost control near the James City Recycling Center. The car hydroplaned on the wet road, spun several times , struck a tree and ejected the driver. The driver of the second car, a 22-year-old Providence Forge man, told police he had been racing with the driving of the Volkswagen, saw the car crash and ran over what he believed to be debris from the accident. The debris was actually the Volkswagen driver, who survived and remains at the Medical College of Virginia with serious injuries. An 8-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl in the Volkswagen suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash. Their relationship to the driver was unclear. (Source)
