EAGLE — On Monday around 5 p.m., Eagle County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a hit-and-run accident involving a mountain biker and a motorcycle near Hardscrabble Road.
A 74-year-old mountain biker was riding his bike uphill on the Second Gulch Trail just off of Arroyo Drive in Eagle Ranch when a motorcycle was reportedly traveling downhill on the same trail. The motorcyclist then collided head on with the mountain biker, causing injuries to the 74-year-old male. The motorcyclist then left the scene without rendering aid or leaving his information.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 20s who went by the name of Tyler. Another male party in his 20s was witnessed riding a separate motorcycle with the suspect. Deputies are following up on additional leads and are asking that the suspect rider who was involved come forward first, as the crash is being investigated as a hit-and-run due to the nature of the accident.
