Medina Alert canceled after fatal hit-and-run crash in Fort Collins

Police believe the victim, a man, might have been hit by a second vehicle, possibly a red Chevy pickup truck.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS) have found one of the vehicles involved in a fatal hit-and-run late Tuesday night.

About 11:39 p.m., police were notified of a pedestrian who was run over in the 900 block of East Mulberry Street. That's near Riverside Avenue.

Shortly after FCPS officers arrived on scene, they located the victim, a man, who was pronounced dead shortly after arrival, according to FCPS.

Officers believe that the victim was hit by at least two vehicles, neither of which stayed at the scene, police said. Through evidence at the scene and witness statements, police said one of the vehicles was a 2004-2012 dark-colored Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck.

After releasing information about that vehicle, FCPS said that the owner contacted them Wednesday morning. Officers interviewed the driver and located the vehicle, and as result, an earlier Medina Alert was canceled.

Officers are working to determine how many other vehicles might have struck the pedestrian and are looking to speak with those drivers. Based on statements from witnesses, investigators believe another involved vehicle might be a red Chevy pickup truck.

In addition, police are looking for any information regarding a semi-truck that might have been stopped in the 900 block of East Mulberry Street between 11 and 11:45 p.m.

East Mulberry Street was closed between Riverside Avenue and Lemay Avenue for hours as police processed the scene. All lanes of traffic were reopened at 5:56 a.m. Wednesday.

The Larimer County Coroner’s Office will release the name of the decedent after proper next of kin notifications have been made.
