FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A man is dead in Fort Collins following a hit-and-run crash, according to Fort Collins police.

Authorities announced later Wednesday that a vehicle — a dark-colored Chevy pickup — believed to be involved had been located and the driver questioned. However, police believe other vehicles were involved.

Just before midnight Tuesday, the department said a pedestrian was struck and killed near East Mulberry St. and Riverside Ave. Officers believe the pedestrian was hit by drivers of at least two separate vehicles, including a red Chevy pickup, both of whom failed to stop, police said.

Additionally, police are seeking any information regarding a semi-truck that may have been stopped in the 900 block of East Mulberry St. between 11 p.m. and 11:45 p.m.

After the crash, authorities issued a Medina Alert for the dark-colored truck. However, the alert was canceled Wednesday after the vehicle was located.

The Larimer County Coroner's Office will release the name of the victim once family has been notified.
