COLORADO SPRINGS — On Monday, July 20, at approximately 10:32 P.M., the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) was called to a crash involving an automobile and a pedestrian near the intersection of N. Circle Drive and Galley Rd.

According to CSPD, 20-year-old Olivia Clark of Colorado Springs was attempting to cross N. Circle Drive at Galley Road heading westbound, when she was struck by a southbound car. Officers say Clark was not in a crosswalk when she was crossing N. Circle Dr. and that the car that struck Clark fled the scene.

On Thursday, July 23, Clark passed away due to the injuries she suffered in the crash.

Investigators determined the car which fled the scene after the crash is described as an early 2000’s model, silver-colored, Audi All-Road station wagon with moderate front end damage. 

On Wednesday, July 29, a community member called the Colorado Springs Police Department’s Communications Center and provided information on the wanted Silver Audi’s possible location.

Based off of the tip, detectives responded to the 1300 block of East Las Animas Street and located the car. After obtaining a search warrant, detectives confirmed it was the correct car involved in the July 20th automobile-pedestrian traffic fatality at the intersection of N. Circle Drive and Galley Rd.

CSPD wants to sincerely thank everyone who helped aid in this search. Everyone who called in a tip or helped spread the word that we were looking for the car, had a direct role in finding answers for Clark’s family.
