The Colorado State Patrol is requesting the assistance from the public to locate a vehicle that was involved in a hit-and-run crash that seriously injured one person. The crash occurred Sunday July 7th at approximately 9:30 p.m. in Adams County.
A full sized pickup truck, a 2007-2009 Dodge was traveling west on the eastbound exit ramp from I-76 from Sheridan Blvd. The pickup was traveling the wrong direction from Sheridan onto I-76. The pickup got to the end of the ramp and executed a U-turn and proceeded eastbound on I-76. While executing the U-turn, the Dodge crossed the right lane and traveled partially into the left lane. Two motorcycles were eastbound on I-76 in the right lane. One of the motorcycles was able to evade the Dodge by swerving to the right. The second motorcycle, a 2009 Harley Davidson was not able to evade the Dodge and collided into the right rear of the Dodge. After the collision the Harley Davidson rolled onto its right side and ejected the male rider. The Dodge stopped on the right shoulder briefly after the collision. The driver of the Dodge did not exit the vehicle or provide information or aid to anyone on scene.
The Dodge pickup should have damage to its right rear, including the right tail light being broken. It appears as though the front fender of the Harley hit and then went under the back bumper of the truck which dented the top of the Harley’s fender significantly so there may be blue paint on the truck’s bumper. The blue fairing on the motorcycle also hit the back of the truck.
If you have any information on this vehicle you are asked to call CSP Dispatch at 303-239-4501.
