ALEXANDRIA, VA. - A hit-and-run in Alexandria led to a domino effect of crashes in Northern Virginia on Monday evening, according to a Virginia State Police news release.

The initial hit-and-run occurred in city bounds in the westbound lanes of I-495. State police responded to the call at 6:30 p.m. A male suspect in a black sedan had struck a westbound vehicle and fled the scene.

The black sedan proceeded to hit a second vehicle in the I-495 westbound lanes, which disabled the sedan. The driver then carjacked a Virginia Department of Transportation Safety Services Patrol truck that had stopped at the scene to offer assistance, state police said.

The suspect drove the stolen truck south on I-95 and struck another vehicle. He then fled the scene and continued south until the stolen truck became disabled. At that point, the suspect fled on foot.
