Police investigating after two suspects in stolen vehicle flee accident scene

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Police are investigating after two suspects in a stolen truck fled the scene of an accident Saturday night.

Around 10:30 p.m., officers responding to a reported disturbance noticed a red pickup truck speed away from the area with its lights off. They attempted to stop the truck but observed it running red lights with traffic in the area. They did not pursue.

Police responded to a traffic accident shortly afterward at the intersection of North Academy Boulevard and Jamboree Drive.

According to authorities, the same red truck hit another vehicle head-on.

The male driver and female passenger of the truck fled the scene on foot. The other driver was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Police say the red truck was discovered to be stolen and was unrelated to the original reported disturbance.

The investigation is ongoing.
