According to the Coloradoan, an altercation surrounding a roadside car accident spiraled out of control, and ended in an intentional hit-and-run. A car with three passengers was heading down Colorado 115 in El Paso County on December 8, when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The car swerved off the road and rolled. Thankfully, all of the passengers survived with only minor wounds.
The occupants of the rolled vehicle climbed out of the car and up the embankment to the road to try to flag down a passerby to give them a ride back to town. A 21-year-old motorist stopped to speak with the 26-year-old driver of the rolled vehicle. Their conversation quickly escalated when the 21-year-old motorist would not give the stranded accident survivors a ride back in to town. A representative of the sheriff’s office said that “[he] got back in his car, drove off, turned around and headed back home.” After the motorists left the accident, survivors stood on the shoulder of the road to catch the attention of passing cars. After leaving, the initial motorist who refused a ride did a U-turn and drove into the accident survivors, killing one in a hit-and-run.
