Henrico Man Struck By Car Dies As Investigation Continues

A young man struck by a car in Henrico County over the weekend has died.

21-year-old Tre’von Mayfield died yesterday, four days after being hit by a car on Mountain Road near New York Avenue.

“We were coming down Mountain Road and I put my head out and just seen him laying on the ground,” said Jerome Hayes.

Hayes and the victim were at a party together but left separately. The driver who hit Mayfield says he was laying on the road when she ran over him.

Now, Henrico County Police believe Mayfield may have fallen from the back of a pick up truck and that’s why he was on the road. It appears the truck did not stop.

Detectives are searching for anyone who might have spotted the truck just before 2:00 Saturday morning. The victim’s friend urges people to speak up if they can help.

“I’m pretty sure people know. People aren’t going to say nothing, you know how people are. If you do know, please come forward. I would like some closure,” added Hayes.

Mayfield’s friends have started a Go Fund Me Account to help pay for funeral expenses.

Three people have been hit and killed in Henrico County in the past week.
