GRANBY — A 26-year-old man was flown to Denver early Sunday morning, sustaining serious injuries after he was struck by a vehicle in Granby shortly after midnight.

At approximately 12:30 a.m. Sunday morning, the man was walking in Granby, on the town’s western end, when he was struck by a vehicle that was driving in the area, according to local law enforcement officials. The crash occurred at West Agate Avenue and Mesa Street. Chief Jim Kraker with the Granby Police said the vehicle was traveling westbound on Agate at the time of the crash.
