A hit-and-run collision in Adams County at an active accident scene, resulted in one passenger in the suspect vehicle being hospitalized.
According to the Colorado State Patrol, emergency response crews were responding to a previous two-vehicle collision around 2 a.m. on the morning of January 6th, at Interstate 76 and the intersection with East 74th Avenue.
Thankfully, that crash only resulted in minor injuries for the people involved, but an ambulance and a firetruck had already been called out to the scene.
About half an hour after the initial crash, a third vehicle crashed into the unoccupied firetruck and ambulance, injuring the passenger in that vehicle, while the driver and another passenger fled the scene on foot, leaving the injured person behind. That passenger was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Police are continuing to investigate, and have reported that a stolen weapon was found in the suspect’s automobile.
No other details were available as of the time of this writing.
