One person was sent to the hospital after a car barreled through downtown Colorado Springs early Wednesday.

About 1 a.m., a hit-and-run crash was reported in the area of 100 East Kiowa Street. A black Kia sedan hit a pedestrian, a white Subaru and a black Volvo, police said. The pedestrian was gone when officers arrived but was found later at a local hospital with a minor injury. The Kia and the Volvo were seriously damaged, and a city parking meter will need repairs.

Police said they are looking for two drivers, but witnesses say that numerous people fled the area.

Sgt. Jason Otero told Gazette news partner KKTV that it was too early to tell whether drugs and alcohol were involved in the incident.

“We got to find out what type of criminal incident we have — if this was a basic traffic incident or if drugs or alcohol involved or if this was intentional, an intentional act,” Otero said.
