Webb hit-and-run trial begins today

The trial of Elias Webb, charged with leaving the scene of a fatal hit-and-run involving bicyclist Lanie Kruszewski on River Road last summer, is due to begin in Richmond Circuit Court today.

Last week, the case’s judge initially ruled that evidence about Webb’s alcohol consumption earlier that night would not be admissible unless Webb took the stand to testify, but later modified that ruling (RT-D) to leave room for it to be admitted “if evidence of his drinking or alleged impairment is established as part of the prosecution’s case.”
