Major Accident Unit detectives continue to investigate the fatal traffic hit and run crash that killed a fourteen year old Colorado Springs, CO boy Thursday, May 4, 2012 at approximately 8:20 PM.
The victim was identified as Ricardo Figueroa.
He was hit by a vehicle described, as follows:
- A late 1970s to early 1980s model, possible Chevrolet full size pickup with a “lift kit” and damage to the left front portion of the vehicle. Preliminary information indicates that the pickup truck is possible Primer Grey or light in color.
- A WHITE MALE is described as being the driver who left the collision scene southbound on South Circle Dr. from Airport Rd.
