The Colorado State Patrol has identified the type of vehicle involved in a crash that killed one man early Sunday morning on Highway 115. State Troopers are asking for the public's help in identifying the driver of a green 1985 to 1993 Dodge full-sized B-series van, which reportedly hit the man while he was trying to flag down help from the road.
At about 2:45 a.m., the hit-and-run victim was in a southbound vehicle that rolled near mile marker 38 in El Paso County.
The victim and two other people inside the vehicle got themselves out and climbed their way back up to the highway, where they attempted to get help from passing motorists.
A short time later, a southbound driver struck Ian Saj, 33, of Brush, Colo. who was standing on the shoulder, according to the State Patrol. He was thrown down an embankment and later pronounced dead.
The State Patrol says the vehicle that hit Saj continued south on Highway 115 without stopping.
State troopers are attempting to find any witnesses of the crash or any motorists who stopped to assist, along with the vehicle that fled the scene.
Anyone with information about the crash can call 719-544-2424.
