AVONDALE, Colo.– Colorado State Patrol (CSP) is currently investigating a two-vehicle hit and run crash that occurred on Wednesday at Highway 50 at Highway 96, just west of Avondale, CO near milepost 329.
CSP says a black 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, driven by an unknown male, turned left from eastbound Highway 50 toward Highway 96 directly in the path of a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 motorcycle.
The motorcycle was driven by 62-year-old Terry Jackson of Boone, CO.
The motorcycle collided into the front right side of the Cobalt resulting in Jackson being ejected from the motorcycle and impacting the windshield of the Cobalt.
Jackson was flown to Parkview Medical Center with serious injuries.
The driver of the Cobalt then moved it to Highway 96 before fleeing the scene on foot.
Witnesses on scene described the driver as a late twenties or early thirties Hispanic male approximately 5’8” to 5’9” tall, medium build, black hair and unshaven.
A witness stated he was wearing a black t-shirt. Police say the driver may have gotten a ride from a small to medium sized white SUV.
CSP says the driver/owner of the white SUV is not considered a suspect but simply wanted for questioning related to the crash or unknown male driver.
