WINDSOR, Colo. — Police in Windsor are investigating after a driver in a Jeep SUV struck three pedestrians, killing one Saturday evening.

The crash occurred around 6:30 p.m. in the 9600 block of Eastman Park Drive.

The 23-year-old driver of a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee was traveling westbound on Eastman Park Drive when, for an unknown reason, the Jeep struck three pedestrians, according to the Windsor Police Department.

One of the pedestrians, a 39-year-old woman, was pronounced deceased on the scene. The Weld County Coroner's Office on Tuesday identified the victim as Jessica Lee Matey Evans, of Gill.

The other two pedestrians had minor injuries that didn't require medical assistance at a hospital, police said.

The driver stayed on scene and was cooperative with investigators, Windsor police said during a Monday update.

A group of about 13 were gathered in the area to commemorate the death of a family member at the location one year ago, according to investigators. The department is still investigating if the driver went off the roadway or if the pedestrians were standing in the roadway.

Police are asking anyone that has information about the traffic accident, and has not talked to investigators, to contact Sergeant Aaron McConnaughey at 970-674-6400.
