WELD COUNTY, Colo. — A hit-and-run driver is being sought after a 91-year-old man was injured in a crash on New Year’s Eve in Weld County, the Colorado State Patrol said Tuesday.
The two-car crash happened about 8 p.m. on northbound Interstate 25 near mile marker 244 just north of Highway 66, east of Longmont.
The Colorado State Patrol said the suspect took off after the crash without helping the elderly man.
The suspect’s red vehicle was described as a 1990-95 red Honda. It is possibly a hatchback and should be missing a side-view mirror.
