Adams County authorities searching for suspect who struck vehicles during traffic stop

Authorities in Adams County are searching for a suspect driver who allegedly rammed into multiple vehicles during a traffic stop before fleeing the scene. The suspect is now at large.

Shortly before 4:30 a.m. Friday, officers with the Thornton Police Department found a red Ford F-350 idling in the middle of the road around the 9700 block of Josephine Street, said Officer Jesus Mendez. Police ran the license plate and discovered the vehicle or plate had been stolen. Several other officers were called to the scene, Mendez said.

As police approached the vehicle, the driver woke up and threw the transmission into reverse, clipping one of the officers’ vehicles, Mendez said. An officer was inside the car at the time, but was not injured.

“The vehicle continues to back up at high rate of speed and ends up hitting and collecting two more vehicles and dragging them,” Mendez said.
