The Eighth Judicial District Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) has been activated to investigate a traffic collision that resulted in the death of a suspect.

On February 18, 2023 at 9:15 p.m., Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a traffic stop on a 2012 Ford Fusion with expired registration. The vehicle was traveling northbound on I-25 and pulled off at the Mountain Vista exit. After a brief contact, deputies determined that the adult male suspect had provided a fictitious name and asked him to step out of the vehicle. The suspect then ran from deputies toward the interstate and a Taser was deployed. The suspect was struck by a passing vehicle and was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased. None of the occupants of the passing vehicle or deputies were injured.

CIRT was notified and has responded to take over the investigation. Fort Collins Police Services is the lead investigating agency and further information regarding this incident will be released by that agency.
