ALEXANDRIA – The driver of an airport Super Shuttle is facing numerous charges after witnesses say he hit as many as six cars on his way out to Dulles International Airport without stopping.
Several vehicles were run off the road. Two people were injured, a 33-year-old mother and her one-year-old daughter. Both were rushed to a nearby hospital where they were treated for minor injuries.
Virginia state police say they have so far charged 25-year-old Muhammed Teshale of Alexandria with one count of Felony Hit and Run. More charges are pending.
Virginia State Police say they began getting calls about a hit and run driver just after nine o’clock Monday morning. The man behind the wheel of a blue Super Shuttle was sideswiping and rear ending cars on westbound I-66.
“Suddenly he came from the left hand side and swerved,” said Amruddin Sadr, a cab driver who was also run off the road.
“I was wondering what happened, the guard rail I hit and I wound up right here.”
Police say the driver of the van was traveling over 90 miles an hour as he headed west toward the airport.
Before hitting the cab, police say the driver rear ended a Chrysler Pacifica sending it off the road with a toddler inside.
“There’s a car with an infant,” said Sadr, the cab driver, “We went over, I stopped and asked her if she’s injured or anything or if baby is fine but they took them to the hospital.”
A spokesperson for the Airport’s Authority says when police caught up with the van it was parked at the terminal. There were no passengers inside.
Said Sadr, “It’s crazy, when you have an accident you have to stop, if you’re a normal person you have to stop and help the injured people or ask them you know?”
