HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A celebrity car crash turned heads on Interstate 64 east near the Short Pump exit Thursday afternoon. It was not a celebrity driving the car that crashed, the actual vehicle itself is pretty famous. The car that ran off the interstate and into the woods was a replica of The General Lee, the 1969 Dodge Charger made famous in the hit television show The Dukes of Hazzard.
State Police said the crash remained under investigation and no one was seriously hurt in the accident. Anyone with additional information about the crash (like the driver’s name) can email a news tip here.
Ironically, Dukes of Hazzard star John “Bo Duke” Schneider is scheduled to be in town later this summer for Wizard World Comic Con Richmond. The convention runs July 31 – August 2 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.
Others stars scheduled to be in Richmond Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Brian’s Song), Billy Boyd (The Lord of the Rings, Master and Commander; The Far Side of the World), Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings, The Goonies), WWE® Superstar Stardust™ and Diva Paige™, Michael Cudlitz (“The Walking Dead,” “Southland”), Kristin Bauer (“True Blood,” “Once Upon a Time”), Drea de Matteo (“Sons of Anarchy,” “The Sopranos”) and Henry Winkler (“Happy Days,” The Waterboy).
