Pueblo police say the construction worker who was hit by a runaway driver last week on Interstate 25 has died.
Police made the announcement Friday, more than a week after the crash happened on the southbound lanes of I-25 between City Center Drive and Ilex Street. A highway construction worker was struck by a vehicle that then fled the scene.
According to PPD, the construction worker was transported to the hospital after the crash. Police said Friday that he had succumbed to his injuries.
Police do not say whether they have a person of interest at this time. However, they do have the make and model of the vehicle in question. The suspect vehicle is described as a newer Ford F-150 full cab (four-door), colored red with black around the wheel wells. It will possibly have damage on the driver’s side.
If you have any information you are encouraged to call Pueblo Police at 553-2502.
