11/16/16 Update from cyclist Jody LaPar:
Since my hit and run case 2 weeks ago, I have learned of a friend who was run off the road the very next day on the same road (Old Stage) while on his bike. The vehicle matches the same description as the one I provided (2010 – 2014 tan Ford Expedition). Additionally, I learned today that there are 2 FB pages in Nederland (Canyon Conditions and Nedheads) where people have been reporting of a tan SUV targeting cyclists for the last 9 months on Old Stage, Lee Hill, Jamestown Canyon….this is a real situation that needs to be stopped. Please, please, please report anything you see. Thank you
From the Boulder Daily Camera:
The Colorado State Patrol is seeking information from the public regarding a hit-and-run on a cyclist on Saturday afternoon.
State Trooper Nate Reid said the crash happened near Olde Stage Road and Lefthand Canyon Drive at about 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.
The cyclist, Jody LaPar, of Boulder, said she was riding on Olde Stage Road when she was struck from behind and left in a ditch.
“The right-hand passenger mirror shattered into my back,” LaPar said. “We went back and picked up the pieces.”
Reid said that the state patrol is in possession of the pieces of the mirror and they appear to belong to a Ford SUV or pickup truck.
LaPar said the vehicle that hit her was tan, and she believes it was a 2010 to 2014 Ford Explorer or Expedition, based on online research she conducted on her own.
She said cyclist groups are helping her look for the vehicle, and she has driven around the area in an attempt to locate it.
“I think at this point, he hasn’t had a chance to fix his mirror,” she said.
LaPar said she suffered a concussion and it is hard to move, but she had a CAT scan and doesn’t have any bleeding in her brain.
Anyone with information is asked to call state patrol dispatch at 303-239-4501.
