WESTMINSTER, Colo. — A truck driver struck and killed a man who was attempting to cross the on-ramp to US 36 at Sheridan Boulevard early Friday, according to a Facebook post from the Westminster Police Department (WPD).

The post says that a man, who was dressed in dark clothing, tried to cross the ramp and was hit by a driver as they traveled across Sheridan Boulevard on the eastbound on-ramp. The driver remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation, according to police.
