PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- Pueblo Police say a person is in custody after a hit-and-run crash that killed a Black Hills Energy employee who was working near Elizabeth Street and Patty Drive Tuesday.

The crash happened around noon; police tell KRDO that the worker was walking across a crosswalk when he was hit. The Pueblo County Coroner identified the victim as 52-year-old Patrick J. Rodrigues.

Pueblo police say the driver, 21-year-old Jarrett Clark Bragg, was driving south in the northbound lanes when he jumped the curb and struck the employee.

Police say Bragg then crashed into a culvert nearby and tried to run away on foot before he was caught by an off-duty police officer.

Bragg faces a slew of charges, including Failure to Remain at the Scene of an Accident Involving Death, Careless Driving Resulting in Death, and Driving Under Revocation (Driver’s License).
