WORLD, Oct. 10 (YPA) – At least one person was killed and several others were injured when a pickup truck rammed through a crowd outside a bar in the US state of Colorado, authorities said on Monday.
According to Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, “when deputies arrived, one male victim was unconscious and later pronounced deceased on scene, four additional male victims were transported to a local hospital with serious injuries, and three other victims with minor injuries remained on scene for interviews with deputies and investigators.
“Witnesses reported an altercation occurred outside the Rock Rest Lodge just prior to the hit and run,” the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office specified, adding that it appears that the suspect “intentionally drove into the victims, striking at least 8 individuals, including restaurant employees.”
The suspect was taken into custody along with the owner of the pickup truck, who also faces charges.
The owner of the vehicle was one of the two passengers inside the truck at the time of the hit-and-run, according to police.
