Truck crashes into Idaho Springs house

Posted
Shortly after midnight on Jan. 15, a truck drove into a house in the 1500 block of Idaho Springs’ Colorado Boulevard. The house was occupied at the time, but no one was injured, according to an Idaho Springs Police Department release.
 
A suspect was identified around 10:30 a.m., after the truck was found damaged.
 
The truck had left the scene by the time Idaho Springs officers arrived. Officers determined that the truck veered off the roadway in the 1500 block of Colorado Boulevard, struck a flower container, and then drove into the side of the home.
 
The suspect then backed out of the home, struck multiple parked cars and fled the area.
 
Multiple agencies responded and took the residents to hotels for the night because of severe damage. The home has a total of three separate apartments.
 
Chuck Harmon, the mayor of Idaho Springs, has partnered with the Clear Creek County Advocates to temporarily house the residents for at least a week to assist those that were impacted by this event.
 
Around 10:30 a.m, Sheriffs deputies were dispatched to a stolen vehicle call near Empire. Deputies contacted the owner of a silver Dodge 2500 truck, who wanted to report the truck as stolen. He said he had found the vehicle severely damaged that morning a few blocks from his home.
After further questioning by deputies, the individual ultimately confessed that his truck hadn’t been stolen, and that he was to the driver who had struck the Idaho Springs home.
 
The investigation is ongoing with charges pending, as of 4:30 p.m. Jan 15.
