Murder Attempt & Accident

An investigation into an early morning car crash reveals a possible murder attempt.

The incident happened very early Sunday morning, just before 2 a.m.

A Jeep Wrangler went off Garden of the Gods Road and smashed into the Hungry Farmer Restaraunt. Colorado Springs police later found out someone shot the driver before the crash.

At first, it looked like the driver just veered off the road. He clipped a street light and slammed into the restaraunt.

The driver is currently at Penrose Hospital in intensive care. Sgt. Sal Fiorello says police have no suspects for the shooting and have launched a criminal investigation.

"We're investigating it as an attempted first degree murder."
