Police Investigate Hit-and-Run Collision
On August 25, 2020 at approximately 11 a.m., Fort Collins Police Services was notified of a collision on East Mulberry Street at the I-25 overpass.
Officers determined that a blue 1993 Honda Civic was turning west onto Mulberry Street from northbound I-25. The vehicle collided with two adult pedestrians walking on the north shoulder of Mulberry at the overpass. Witnesses reported seeing two occupants in the vehicle, which left the scene before first responders arrived.
Both pedestrians sustained serious injuries and were transported to area hospitals for treatment. The vehicle was found abandoned in the 1700 block of Kirkwood Drive. Upon further investigation, officers determined that it had previously been reported stolen.
The FCPS CRASH (Collision Reconstruction and Scene Handling) Team responded to this incident, and traffic was diverted in the area for approximately 3 hours while they processed the scene.
“We need our community’s help identifying the two individuals responsible for this incident,” said FCPS Assistant Chief Tim Doran, who leads the agency’s Special Operations Division. “Leaving the scene of a crash, especially after severely injuring pedestrians, is not only morally repugnant, it’s a felony.”
Officers are still working to identify suspects involved in this incident. Anyone who has information, who has not already spoken to police, is asked to contact Officer Ken Koski at 970-416-2229. People who wish to remain anonymous may contact Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.
