Pedestrian Killed in Hit-and-run Accident on Highway 17 in Mosca, CO
Mosca, CO -- March 8, 2023, a pedestrian was killed due to an accident, following which a driver allegedly fled the scene.
Investigators said that the incident happened at around 7:00 p.m. along Highway 17. The exact circumstances are still under investigation. Police say that a vehicle, believed to be a black semi-tanker, hit a pedestrian. That vehicle then left the scene.
The pedestrian died due to the collision. Right now, police say they identified the driver involved. Additional details are unavailable at this time.
If it's true authorities know who did this, then time will tell if there will be charges here. Authorities say charges may be pending, but sometimes they mean that quite literally. They may just find there was no wrongdoing here, considering the driver a commercial vehicle may not realize they hit someone in such a large vehicle. But if they knowingly left the scene, there's the concern of there possibly being a company willing to employ someone capable of such an awful decision. Could it be there are other issues surrounding this incident that also need to be addressed?
