Richmond Police have charged the Uber driver who supposedly sped through the roads with travelers in the secondary lounge. Olufemi S. Olomola, 38 of Marlin Drive in Henrico, was accused of two checks of snatching, foolish driving, and crime attempt at manslaughter for the Monday night occurrence.
A few were gotten from their home just before 8 p.m. Monday. Not long after pulling ceaselessly, they said somebody back finished their Uber on Chamberlayne Avenue. “Our Uber endeavored to pull over with the goal that they trade data, yet the vehicle didn’t stop behind us. They circumvented us and hurried off, and that is the point at which our Uber dashed off behind him,” Swann reviewed.
The Uber driver at that point maneuvers onto West Broad Street and races through a few increasingly red lights, as per the video. The couple said an SUV at that point collided with the side of their vehicle at West Broad St. also, Arthur Ashe Blvd. The video demonstrated the driver proceeding to dash away, barely missing a bicyclist.
“At roughly 8:15 p.m. on Monday, officials were called to the 2800 square of West Broad Street for the report of an attempt at manslaughter. Officials showed up and addressed the driver who announced that while shipping travelers, his vehicle was struck by another vehicle and that vehicle left the scene,” as per a police representative. The couple says they endured minor wounds and were looked at the medical clinic.
