Fort Collins Police: Driver Hit Two Motorcycles In Hit-And-Runs
Fort Collins Police say the driver of a Dodge Dakota pickup hit two motorcycles within a short time on Sunday afternoon.
That's according to a post on the Fort Collins Police Services Facebook page.
According to the post, police were first called to a vehicle versus motorcycle crash at 4:43 pm at the intersection of South College Avenue and Columbia Avenue. The drive of the pickup fled the scene, according to police. But about two minutes later police got a call about a second pickup/motorcycle crash north of Drake Road on South College Avenue.
The driver kept driving on South College, but the pickup left it's license plate attached to a bumper which came off the truck in the second collision. Using that evidence, police went to the home of the registered owner of the pickup. They found the vehicle with damage consistent with the damage reported in the crashes, as well as the driver. Police say the spoke with the driver, who was cooperative with investigators.
The post says police are trying to determine whether the driver may have suffered from medical issues that might have contributed to the crashes. The post says investigators have pieced together what may have happened:
The investigation to this point has revealed that the Dodge Dakota was traveling southbound on College Avenue when it collided with a 2022 black Harley Davidson Road Glide motorcycle near Columbia Road. That motorcycle had two people on it; an adult male and an adult female. Both of them were transported to an area hospital with complaint of injuries. The Dakota continued southbound when it then struck a 2012 black Harley Davidson Sportster 48 motorcycle just north of Drake Road. That rider, an adult male as well, was transported to an area hospital with serious but nonlife-threatening injuries.
