Pedestrian hit in Carbondale sustains serious injuries
A 22-year-old man sustained serious injuries when he was hit by a vehicle in Carbondale Tuesday morning.
The young man was crossing Colorado 133 at the crosswalk at Village Road when a northbound driver struck him at about 8:15 a.m.
He was taken to Valley View Hospital.
Carbondale police say the driver was cooperating, and investigators have yet to determine if charges are warranted.
“The Carbondale Police Department wants to remind drivers to take an extra look and watch for pedestrians, especially near stop signs, crosswalks and stoplights. They also encourage pedestrians to use marked crosswalks, never cross against traffic and not to assume that vehicle drivers see them crossing,” the department said in a press release.
Carbondale police ask anyone who witnessed the incident who has not already spoken to police to call 970-963-2662 or email email@example.com.
