Fort Collins Police Investigate Fiery Gas Station Collision on Mulberry
Fort Collins Police Services is asking the public for surveillance video of a crash that happened Sunday night, which resulted in a fire.
According to Fort Collins Police Services, the collision happened on the 800 block of Mulberry Street, near the intersection of Riverside Avenue, just before 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 30.
In a news release, police said that a Lincoln pickup truck appeared to be traveling eastbound on Mulberry Street before crossing over to the north side of the road. When that happened, the truck hit two unoccupied vehicles, which were likely parked at a business. Those vehicles then hit the side of a building, causing 'significant damage.' Additionally, the truck hit a gas line at a gas station, which according to police, 'erupted into flames,' extensively damaging the truck. Poudre Fire Authority and Xcel Energy responded to the 911 call.
Three people were in the truck, including a 19-year-old male driver from Johnstown, and two others. One minor was transported to a hospital with serious injuries, but there is no other information available surrounding injuries or possible fatalities with those involved.
Fort Collins Police Services is still investigating the collision and is determining if speed was a factor. However, at this time, authorities did not state whether drugs, alcohol or other contributing factors were involved, or have been ruled out.
To assist in the investigation, Fort Collins Police Services is requesting that anyone with information contact them, and if you are a business owner in the area who may have surveillance footage, to also contact police.
'Officers are asking anyone with video surveillance of Mulberry Street in between College Avenue and Riverside Avenue to review their footage to see if their cameras captured any of this incident, and if it did to also contact police,' Fort Collins Police Services posted on Facebook. You can also call Officer Brandon Barnes at (970) 221-6540.
