Man driving on I-70 fatally shot by someone in stolen vehicle

Dashcam video posted to Reddit shows shots fired from a silver pickup truck that then crashes into the back of a semi.

DENVER — Dashcam video of a fatal shooting on Interstate 70 late Sunday shows someone in a silver pickup truck fire shots into a vehicle in the next lane over, before the pickup crashes into the back of a semi.

The shooting and crash happened just before 11 p.m. on westbound I-70 near the Northfield/Quebec exit, according to the Denver Police Department (DPD). The circumstances of the crash are under investigation.

The 35-second video was posted by a witness to Reddit and is part of the investigation, DPD said.

In the video, the pickup is tailing a Subaru Outback in the far left lane of I-70, next to the HOV lane. It then swerves into the far right lane to pass traffic, then swerves again into the center lane, next to the Outback.

Shots are heard on the video, just before the pickup crashes into the back of a semi, spins and is hit by another vehicle.

The driver of the Subaru, identified as 31-year-old Kevin Piaskowski, was taken to a hospital and was later pronounced dead, according to DPD.

The driver of the pickup ran from the scene of the crash, DPD said. They said they aren't sure if anyone else was in the truck at the time or what led up to the shooting.
