An 18-year-old Jimmy John's delivery driver has been charged after he hit a gaggle of geese in Colonial Heights, Virginia, according to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

DGIF officials say the incident took place along Roslyn Road on October 24.

They say Roberto Pietri drove through a gaggle of geese, killing two of them, according to a report from our sister station WSET.

VDGIF says Pietri was charged on October 25, after a concerned citizen brought the incident to the department't attention.

He's facing three misdemeanor charges: driving with a revoked license, unlawfully hunting and killing a wild animal, and killing migratory game bird in violation of board regulations.

A DGIF spokesperson said this appeared to be an accident and that Pietri was "unable to stop."
