JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office issued an arrest warrant Monday for a suspect wanted in a hit-and-run crash that injured two cyclists, one critically, on Sunday morning.

"We have we have a victim that's in critical condition. And we don't know whether she'll be able to fully recover. So it's very serious, and the charges that the driver is facing are also very serious," Jenny Fulton, JeffCo Sheriff's Office Public Affairs Director said.

Deputies are looking for Alan (Haley) Mill, 38, who is wanted on two counts of first-degree assault and leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury.

"This person has an extensive history with run ins with the law, some in our jurisdiction, and some in other jurisdictions in the metro area," Fulton said.

One of the two victims, a woman, remains in critical condition, the sheriff’s office said. The other victim sustained minor injuries.

A Medina Alert was issued Sunday after the sheriff’s office said Mill intentionally struck the two victims who were with a group of cyclists traveling eastbound in the 29000 block of US Highway 40 around 9:45 a.m.

Mill, who was driving a 2018 Ford Escape SUV in the same direction, struck the two after having passed another cyclist in the group, according to the sheriff’s office.

Witnesses told investigators that after the collision, Mill drove through a restaurant parking lot at a high rate of speed, seemingly to dislodge a badly damaged bicycle from beneath the suspect’s vehicle, the sheriff’s office said.

In a tweet Monday night, the sheriff's office said the suspect vehicle was located in the 4400 block of South Zinnia Street. It was called in by someone in the neighborhood and is believed to have been dumped there overnight, the sheriff's office said. Mill is still at large.

"I must say that we are absolutely heartbroken about the event. I speak on behalf of the board. Every one of our members, all of our ambassadors, and I know everyone who's ever partaken of a ride, or in one of our events that we are just heartbroken," Valerie Southgate, Team Evergreen Board of Directors Chair said.

Team Evergreen organized Sunday's ride and Southgate confirmed both victims are ambassadors for the organization.

"We have an a group of ambassadors, 31 individuals...on each of our rights, we have between two to three ambassadors present and their role is to ensure a safe ride a kind and harmonious ride and also inclusiveness," Southgate said.

South gate said Team Evergreen's mission is to promote the joy of cycling in the Rocky Mountain states.

"There are three elements to that particular mission. One is really expanding the cycling community by providing rider experiences. The second tier is putting on compelling events. And the third is philanthropy," Southgate said. "Sunday's event ride event was fulfilling part of that first part of our mission. It was one of our regular rides on a Sunday that had been in existence for an awfully long time, and are usually a very joyous place to be. But on this particular Sunday, absolutely tragic."

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said is anyone see Mill, call local law enforcement immediately.
