PUEBLO, Colo. — Officials want to catch an 18-year-old from Pueblo County who is accused of running over his grandmother during the theft of a vehicle.
The 67-year-old woman was seriously injured when she was run down early Thursday morning in the 1400 block of 27th Lane in Pueblo County.
The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office said Fabian Quintana was trying to steal a recently purchased 2007 pickup truck.

He’s described as a Hispanic male, 5-foot-8 and 165 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
