FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A man was killed after a crash in the 6800 block of South College Avenue in Fort Collins.

On Sunday, at about 10:10 p.m., officers were notified of the crash involving a pedestrian, according to Fort Collins Police Services (FCPS). When officers arrived on the scene they found the pedestrian, a man, who had died on the scene, police said.

The man was in the roadway, mid-block, when he was hit by a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado, police said. A second vehicle, a 2007 Subaru Impreza, was traveling behind the Chevrolet and struck the pedestrian as well, according to police.

Neither driver of the two vehicles was injured, according to police.

The crash closed South College Avenue between Trilby Road and Carpenter Road for about five hours while the scene was processed, police said.

“Unfortunately, this is yet another fatal collision involving a pedestrian crossing mid-block in the dark," said Sergeant Mike Avrech who oversees the Fort Collins Police CRASH Team. "We implore pedestrians to [utilize] designated crosswalks in an effort to prevent these tragedies.”

Anyone with information regarding this collision who has not already spoken to police is asked to call Officer Ken Koski at (970) 416 2229.
