CHERRY HILLS VILLAGE, Colo. — The Cherry Hills Village Police Department is trying to identify a person of interest in a fatal crash that occurred July 26.

Police said the crash happened along the 4000 block of S. University Boulevard around 6:34 p.m.

Stacy L. Pepper, 37, was killed. She was originally from Colorado but most recently lived in San Francisco and was in town visiting family, according to her family.

She was struck by a truck that was reported stolen out of Jefferson County, police said. The suspect and truck were both associated with a burglary in Arapahoe County.

According to her obituary, the driver crossed three lanes of oncoming traffic and crashed into her head-on.

The suspect fled from the scene on foot. He is described as a white man last spotted in a dark-colored shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. He may have an injured left arm.

"Stacy was incomparably vibrant, endlessly curious, and had a passion for exploring the world broadly and deeply," her obituary reads. "She was remarkable at making and maintaining life-long friendships. It brought her great joy to share her experiences with friends and family, and document her world travels through perfectly crafted photo memory books."

Anybody with information is asked to call the Cherry Hills Village Police Department tip line at 720-305-9831.
