COLORADO SPRINGS, CO — The Colorado Springs Police Department is asking for the public's help in assisting them to identify and locate a vehicle allegedly involved in a deadly hit-and-run accident.

According to Colorado Springs police, the truck pictured above struck a pedestrian in the crosswalk on Friday, October 20th at South Tejon Street and the southbound off-ramp of I-25.

When first responders got to the scene they found a person dead at the scene and the vehicle had fled. In a news release, CSPD said officers believe that after the crash the vehicle headed west onto East Motor Way towards the Motor City Area of Colorado Springs.

After reviewing surveillance footage investigators believe the truck is a dark color or green with two white "racing" stripes down its hood, step bars, and toolbox attached to the bed, and could have a broken passenger window. It is either a single-cap or extended cab truck.

Police said the driver is believed to be a 50-60-year-old white man with a short beard and mustache.
