Investigators say a Broomfield police officer saw the truck and tried to stop it on Interstate 25 near Highway 7 about 30 minutes later. They say the truck driver fled.

The Colorado State Patrol and Adams County Sheriff’s deputies joined and they performed a PIT maneuver — a common tactic in pursuits where officers spin out a suspect’s car — on I-25 near 56th Avenue.
