Police in Pueblo are searching for 31-year-old Jeremy Molina after he caused a serious hit-and-run accident while driving a stolen pickup truck.
Molina was driving the stolen vehicle on West 4th Street in Pueblo early Monday morning around 4 a.m. when, according to the Pueblo Police Department, he noticed a police cruiser, apparently became nervous, and started driving erratically. Molina started speeding and quickly entered into the oncoming lane of traffic and crashed head on into a white Chevrolet sedan carrying a mother and 6-year-old child.
After the crash, Molina fled the scene of the accident on foot, leaving his injured female passenger behind, and the mother and child, who were also seriously injured in the accident, were flown to the hospital for treatment.
The pickup truck was reported stolen the day before the accident, and Molina is on parole for an earlier assault. 4th Street westbound was closed to traffic for over 5 hours while the police investigated the accident and cleared the scene.
Police are asking that anyone with information please call 719-553-2502.
