Man in critical condition after he was hit by car near downtown Pueblo

PUEBLO, Colo. (KKTV) - A man is in critical condition after police say he jumped out of a car and then was promptly hit by one.

Police believe it was the car the man had just exited that then ran over him, but the incident remains under investigation.

The crash was reported at 4th Street and Midtown Circle Drive near downtown Pueblo at 9:30 a.m.


Police say the victim jumped out after getting into an argument with the woman driving the car. The vehicle was only going about 20 mph at the time. At this time, it's unclear if anyone will be ticketed.

A sergeant with the Pueblo Police Department later told 11 News the incident was being treated as a suicide attempt.
