Suspect Surrenders in Hit and Run Accident

By  | 

45-year-old George Largent faces changes of hit and run, vehicular assault, and reckless driving.

Canon City police chief Dan Shull says officers recovered a vehicle thought to have been involved in the hit and run accident on his property last night.

An arrest warrant for the owner was being sought Tuesday night.

Sixteen-year old girl Megan Terrill was injured in the accident. She remains in a Pueblo hospital in critical condition.

Shull says a tip brought officers' attention to a residence in western Fremont County where they served a search warrant and impounded a Chevrolet Suburban vehicle. Shull says the Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been on the scene looking for evidence.
