Man Arrested After Hit-and-Run Incident


WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- The Waynesboro Police Department arrested a Waynesboro man on multiple charges after a hit and run accident in downtown over the weekend.

Eugene Fleetwood Kennedy, 36, has been charged with a felony and four misdemeanors after his 2007 Chrysler Sebring collided with a 2006 Hummer H3 at the intersection of Main Street and Wayne Avenue, according to police.

Kennedy then fled the scene traveling nearly two miles to his residence.

Just after 1 a.m. on March 15, officers responded to Quadrangle Apartments on 4th Street where they spoke with the 44-year-old victim who told officers he followed Kennedy after Kennedy rear-ended his vehicle.

The victim added that after the collision, he got out to check Kennedy’s welfare.

Kennedy said he was unhurt then he said he was going home.

Officers found the vehicle at the apartment complex and saw Kennedy enter an apartment; however, according to police, Kennedy, who was quite intoxicated, entered the wrong apartment so officers were able to detain him.

According to police, Kennedy was combative with officers and refused to do any sobriety tests and it took three officers to get him into custody.

Kennedy’s combative behavior continued throughout his arrest and transport to jail, according to Waynesboro police.

Officers charged Kennedy with the following offenses, felony hit and run, a DUI, Kennedy's second offense in 5 years, refusal of a breath test, driving on a revoked license and resisting arrest.

Neither driver was injured in the accident.

Damages to the two vehicles is estimated at $3,000.

Kennedy is being held without bond at Middle River Regional Jail.
