A young Fort Collins man was hit and killed by a pickup Tuesday night as he was running near the intersection of Summit View Drive and Mulberry Street. The Larimer County Coroner's Office identified the man as Chase T. Murdoch.

The 21-year-old man was running west in the eastbound lanes of Hwy. 14 when he was struck by a 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck driven by a 35-year-old Evans man around 11:40 p.m. and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Murdoch was believed to have recently left the nearby Sundance Steakhouse and Saloon.

Alcohol is being investigated as a possible factor. An investigation ongoing.
