Pedestrian hit, killed on C-470 near Santa Fe

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — C-470 was shut down in both directions between Wadsworth Blvd. and Santa Fe Dr. Wednesday night after a vehicle hit and killed a pedestrian on the highway.

A spokesperson for the Colorado State Patrol says they received calls about a drunk driver on C-470 at about 6:50 p.m.

Before troopers could get to the driver, he stopped his car on C-470 just west of Santa Fe, got out, and was acting erratically.

The Patrol says another vehicle hit him.

The highway was closed in both directions while authorities conducted their investigation.
