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.

The man was transported to the emergency room at Middle Park Medical Center with serious injuries before being flown to a Denver area hospital via helicopter. Law enforcement officials said the driver of the vehicle is not a resident of Colorado.

Local authorities released the vehicle’s driver and occupants after processing the scene of the crash. No arrests were made related to the incident and no charges have been filed. Kraker said investigators do not believe alcohol played a role in the actions of the vehicle’s driver.
