On November 16, 2017, at approximately 9:16 p.m., a Larimer County Sheriff’s Office deputy was in the area of West County Road 8 and Meadowlark Drive in Berthoud investigating suspicious activity.  The Sheriff’s Office was aware of possible drug activity in the area and had also received recent information from concerned citizens regarding the same.

The deputy observed a BMW sedan commit a traffic violation as it was leaving the area and attempted a traffic stop.    The driver of the BMW failed to stop, sped southbound on County Road 17 in excess of 100 mph, and began pulling away from the deputy’s vehicle.

When the deputy reached the area of County Roads 17 and 2E, he saw the BMW had left the roadway and crashed.  The adult male driver and sole occupant of the vehicle had been ejected from the vehicle during the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene.  The Larimer County Coroner’s Office responded and will release the identity of the driver pending notification of next of kin.  Troopers with Colorado State Patrol responded to investigate the crash.

It was later determined the driver of the BMW had multiple outstanding arrest warrants and his driver’s license was suspended.

As with all vehicle pursuits, the Sheriff’s Office will review this incident to determine if policies were properly followed.  No further information will be released at this time.
