According to police, a 2006 Toyota Tacoma was traveling on I-664 SB in the NB lanes across the Monitor Merrimac toward the Suffolk inspection booth.

The driver has now been identified as Robert Charles Madden, Jr. of Post Street in Newport News.

Police say he hit seven vehicles. There were minor damages but no one was hurt.

Troopers attempted to stop Madden and police say he hit two State Police vehicles several times. Troopers eventually stopped him at Jefferson and Dresden Drive in Newport News.

He has now been charged with eight counts of hit and run, one count of reckless driving in Suffolk. He has also been charged with DUI, reckless driving, eluding, damage to state property and a felony in Newport News.
