Greeley man faces charge in crash that killed 80-year-old pedestrian in Fort Collins

Police: Driver was under the influence of alcohol

FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Police say a man faces a charge of vehicular homicide after a crash that killed a pedestrian in Fort Collins.

 

Investigators say 80-year-old Marie Hayes was driving home late Sept. 12 when her car ran out of gas. After leaving her car to seek help, she was struck by an SUV and then by two more cars.

A 1999 Ford Expedition, traveling south on College, was the first to hit Hayes, followed by a 1991 Honda Civic, police said. Both vehicles stopped -- their drivers were not injured.

 

Police said a third vehicle, which has only been described as light in color, was the third to hit the woman and left the scene.

Police say Monty Dumler of Greeley was driving the SUV and allegedly was under the influence of alcohol at the time. Dumler turned himself in to the Larimer County jail Tuesday.

It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
