All of East Fountain Boulevard has been closed while police investigate a hit-and-run crash that occurred at Jet Wing Drive and Fountain Blvd. a little after 6 p.m.
Two people were taken by ambulance to a local hospital. The extent of their injuries is not known, but they were deemed “serious.” A suspect has been taken into custody.
“One driver fled the scene on foot and was caught shortly after,” said Colorado Springs police Sgt. Craig Simpson.
Depending on results of the investigation and condition of the victims, the department’s major accident unit may respond. If that occurs, the road could be shut down late evening, Simpson said.
