Hit-and-run confrontation caught on camera in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- At the intersection of Woodmen and Black Forest Road in Colorado Springs this afternoon, a man in a white mini van with no license plates collided with another vehicle, then left the scene.

Michael Ingram was a few cars behind with his dash camera rolling inside his vehicle. The camera caught the accident occur as the mini van turned on Black Forest Rd.

Ingram followed the mini van for a number of minutes to try and help Colorado Springs Police in their investigation.

"It triggered something in me, it upset me that someone was trying to get away with not meeting up to their responsibilities, not checking on the driver, not taking responsibilities for their actions," Ingram said.

The video shows the man get out of his vehicle and gesture towards the Ingram's vehicle.

"He stormed out of his vehicle in a very threatening manner. We were very concerned, so I pulled up about 20 or 30 feet so he couldn't make contact with us," Ingram said.

Ingram admits that following the vehicle wasn't the best idea, and doesn't recommend doing it. However, he knew he could be in service of police during their investigation.

Colorado Springs Police confirmed that if you see a hit and run, you should not follow or make contact with the vehicle. Instead, pull over, call police, and try to get a license plate.

Ingram said, "I did notice that he corrected very quickly and just didn't think twice. He's like forget this I am out of here and just took off. Complete disregard for safety and other people and the other driver."

CSPD confirmed that the hit and run crashed occurred, and they are reviewing video footage that Ingram provided them.

  1. This MF perp makes any threatening movements whatsoever where the occupant of the vehicle is in fear of their life. Well, you know what to do.

    1. nope, not in colorado. cant chase em or confront them and then use deadly force. better read up on the laws here homie.

  2. I got to say though this guy is WT loser but the black car shouldn’t have been turning. But then again two wrongs don’t make a right.

    1. I don’t understand why they don’t either. It’s easy revenue collection fo sho’.
      Tons of expired tags everywhere as well.
      I live on a very limited income-yet I always manage to have my tags current and my insurance intact.

  3. Not defending the driver but he does have a green arrow which means the guy he hit was turning on red. As you can see the black suv does not stop before turning. No plates on van probably no insurance either which is probably why he ran. But now police have nice picture of him

    1. I watched that video several times before I saw what you are saying. The black vehicle is in the wrong for taking a right on red and not stopping first.

    2. Also, the “hero of the day” or “moron” who was following the van could have been dead if the guy got out of his van with a gun. He lucked out on this one. The idiot driver making the left turn on red should have his/her license revoked and made to retake driver education.

      1. I’m not so sure the guy in the white van hit the black SUV. The black SUV might have swerved out of its way and yes it should have been yielding to him. I say he might not have hit them because I don’t see any debris on the road generally when two cars come together there’s all sorts of stuff left on the road.

        1. You can see a piece fall off the black car and land in the road. It is then run over by the white pickup in the right lane.
