Virginia State Police are seeking information about a fatal hit-and-run collision in Fauquier County.

The crash occurred Sunday night on Route 17 less than a mile south of Route 28.

A green, Ford F-150 pickup truck struck the rear of a 2004 Scion, and the impact pushed the Scion into another car. The Scion and the pickup truck then ran off the side of the road together, and the truck's driver fled on foot, according to the Associated Press.

The Scion's driver, 58-year-old Douglas Rabren, was killed. Police are looking for the pickup truck's driver as well as its owner, 32-year-old Diego Vasquez Mendoza of Culpeper, the AP reported.

Anyone with information can call police at 540-829-7771.
