State Patrol Looking For Driver Involved In Crash

State troopers are searching for a driver involved in a crash where a person was seriously hurt.

Tuesday night, a 1984 Toyota pickup with California license plates crashed on I-25 about six miles north of the El Paso County/Pueblo County line.

The driver fled the scene, leaving behind his companion, who was seriously injured. State Patrol says witnesses responded to help the injured party.

The driver is described as a Caucasian or Hispanic man, about 6 feet tall with a slim build. State Patrol says the driver also has a thin, "pock-marked" or acne-scarred face. He was wearing a brown or tan Carhartt jacket and a dark-colored beanie cap.

The driver tried to hitch a ride from witnesses, so he may have been picked up in the area.

If you have any information on the driver, called Colorado State Patrol at 719-544-2424.
