HANOVER COUNTY, Va. -- A woman is in the hospital with serious injuries after she was struck by a vehicle while she was out for a run Sunday morning.
Hanover County Sheriff's deputies responded to the 17200 block of Dunns Chapel Road a little before 7:15 a.m. for a report of a hit-and-run vehicle crash.
When they arrived, they found 42-year-old Denise Gorondy lying on the side of the road with serious injuries. She was transported to VCU Medical Center.
Neighbor: 'Somebody riding a bicycle found her'
Jimmy Seay, who lives next to the crash site, said a cyclist discovered Gorondy.
“When I come down the lady was laying out in the field. The deputies and everybody was here. Somebody riding a bicycle found her laying over in the field,” he said.
Gorondy is a doctor at Three Oaks Equine Veterinary Services and the wife of a Richmond Police detective.
“We do see her from time to time running and most of the time she runs early," Seay said. "I understand she had on blaze orange today when she was running and all.”
Investigators said the vehicle that struck Gorondy was traveling eastbound on Dunns Chapel Road.
Deputies released a description of the vehicle they believe was involved: a 2010-2015 red Toyota RAV 4 with a double silver or white pinstripe. The vehicle should have heavy damage to the front driver’s side and is missing the side view mirror on the driver’s side.
Sgt. James Cooper said deputies located the suspect's vehicle Sunday evening. However, they have not yet made an arrest since as they are still investigating who was driving the vehicle.
Anyone with information that could help investigators should call the Hanover County Sheriff's Office at 804-365-6140 or the Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers at 804-780-1000.
