COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado Springs Police have identified the suspect driver in a fatal hit-and-run accident that occurred on October 29 at South Academy Blvd. and Hancock Expwy.

According to CSPD, detectives are looking for 27-year-old Miguel Ulice Soliz-Zuniga, who is believed to be the driver of the 1990 black Chevy Silverado that fatally struck 52-year-old Rosalinda Jacquez on the 29th.

The suspect now has an active arrest warrant for felony hit-and-run.

CSPD said Solis-Zuniga has connections, as well as work history, with construction/drywall businesses in Colorado Springs. Detectives believe he may still be in the area.

He is described as being approximately 5’08” tall, 168lbs, with black hair and brown eyes.

If anyone has any information as to the whereabouts of Mr. Solis-Zuniga, please immediately call 9-1-1. Do not attempt to detain, approach, or take him into custody. In addition to calling 9-1-1, community members can also call Crime Stoppers at (719) 634-STOP (7867) to remain anonymous.

Just after midnight on October 29, police responded to the intersection of South Academy and Hancock and found the sole occupant of a Honda sedan had died at the scene of a wreck. That individual was later identified as Rosalinda Jacquez. The driver of the other vehicle involved in the crash, a Chevrolet pick-up truck, fled the scene on foot prior to the arrival of first responders.

CSPD said excessive speed on the part of the truck is suspected and evidence found at the scene points to the possibility that alcohol impairment may have been a factor as well.
