A Wolf Point man living in Colorado was killed in a hit and run accident.

Michel Red Dog

Michel James Red Dog, 29, died in Fort Collins, Colo., after being hit by a car Tuesday, April 18, 2023. Police stated the accident possibly involved two vehicles striking the person. 

The Fort Collins police were notified at approximately 11:39 p.m. of a pedestrian run over on East Mulberry Street, according to a Fort Collins Police Services news release.

When police arrived, they found an adult male laying in the road. He was pronounced deceased on arrival, media reports state. 

Police believe Red Dog was hit by at least two vehicles, “neither of which stayed at the scene or reported it to police,” the release said.

Witness testimony and evidence located at the scene led officers to believe that one of those vehicles is a 2004 to 2012 dark-colored Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck. 

Fort Collins police worked with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation to issue a Medina alert for the suspect vehicle and announced Wednesday afternoon that they had located it and the driver. A Medina alert, a hit and run notification system, is sent out in an effort to locate a suspect vehicle in hit-and-run crashes.

The investigation into Red Dog’s death is ongoing and police will later submit the case to the county attorney for possible charges.

Law enforcement is investigating how many other vehicles may have struck Red Dog, Fort Collins police said.

“Our preliminary investigation and statements from witnesses lead us to believe another involved vehicle may be (a) red Chevy pickup truck.” they said. 

Police are seeking any information regarding a semi-truck that may have been stopped in the 900-block of East Mulberry Street between 11:00 to 11:45 pm.
