Title
3900 E Pikes Peak Avenue
Location
On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, at approximately 03:07 A.M., an officer with the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) observed a white SUV at the intersection of South Murray Boulevard and East Pike Peak Avenue commit a traffic infraction. The officer activated his lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop, at which time the SUV fled west on Pikes Peak Avenue at a high rate of speed. The officer did not pursue the vehicle.

At approximately 03:09 A.M., officers were notified of a rollover traffic crash in the front yard of a residence in the 3900 block of East Pikes Peak Ave. Upon responding to that address, officers observed that the crashed vehicle was the same SUV that had fled from the earlier traffic stop. Officers also located a deceased party inside the vehicle. The CSPD Major Crash Team responded and assumed responsibility for the investigation.

Based upon preliminary information from witnesses that an unknown person fled from the crash scene, this fatality is being investigated as a possible hit and run. Officers are also investigating reports that the white SUV was stolen.

This will be the 35th traffic related fatality in Colorado Springs in 2019. At this time last year, there were 39 traffic fatalities in the city.
