Pedestrian struck near Dotsero

At the scene of a multivehicle wreck, a pickup truck on Interstate 70 hit a pedestrian near Dotsero Monday morning, and the pedestrian’s condition was not immediately known.

Trooper Nate Reid, a Colorado State Patrol public information officer, received reports of a multi-vehicle wreck west of Dotsero just before 8 a.m. The incident soon became a series of wrecks: a three-vehicle crash, a rollover, at least one slide-off.

A man in one of the vehicles from the three-vehicle crash was on foot at the scene when he was hit by a pickup truck.

The pedestrian was eventually transported to Valley View Hospital, though the seriousness of his injuries was unclear. Reid received reports that the victim was up and walking around at the scene and able to talk to the troopers.

No other injuries were reported from these incidents.

At 8:45 a.m. Colorado Department of Transportation warned of traffic delays on I-70 near Dotsero due to multiple slide-offs and icy conditions.
