Original Story: Just after 9 p.m. Wednesday two people walking on Drake Road near Matthews Street were injured in a hit-and-run collision. Police found the victims unresponsive at the scene south of the CSU campus.

At first, police had three different descriptions for the vehicle involved in the collision, but at 10:28, a passenger of a vehicle involved wanted to turn themselves in to the authorities, according to police scanner chatter.

The two people injured in the collision were transported to the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland.
