RICHMOND — The driver who police say was involved in a fatal hit-and-run in Greene County on Sunday turned herself in Tuesday and the Virginia State Police have taken custody of the vehicle.

Authorities have not yet released the identification of the driver.

At about 11:31 p.m. Sunday, a motorcycle operated by Daniel M. Kampe, 30, of Henrico County, was northbound on U.S. 29 in Greene when it ran off the road and Kampe was ejected into a northbound travel lane, police said.

Authorities believe Kampe survived the initial motorcycle wreck, said state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller.

Minutes later, a Toyota Solara struck Kampe and left the scene, Geller said.

After striking Kampe, the Toyota stopped at the Sheetz on U.S. 29 in Ruckersville and then continued north on 29, authorities said.

Kampe died at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.
