The Stafford County Sheriff’s Office has located Kelly Lewis, 37, of no fixed address, after a hit and run accident on Thursday, August 20th.

On August 20th, Deputy M.L. Jacobeen responded to the 3000 block of Jefferson Davis Highway for a head on collision between a Toyota Tacoma and a Toyota Rav4. The investigation revealed the Tacoma was travelling northbound on Jefferson Davis Highway when it crossed the center line and struck the other vehicle. The driver of the Rav4 was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Tacoma had fled the scene prior to law enforcement arrival. A perimeter was established around the area and a K-9 search was conducted. The driver was able to avoid capture that day.

Through his investigation, Deputy Jacobeen identified the driver of the Tacoma as Kelly Lewis. Lewis was able to avoid arrest until this morning when Sergeant R.W. Jones, Deputy S.M. Eastman and Deputy D.J. Taylor located her in Foxwood Village. Lewis is now in the custody of the Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond. Her charges include felony hit and run, reckless driving, and a prior warrant from January of this year for failing to appear.

We would like to thank the public for their tips which led to Lewis’ capture.
