Three pedestrians were taken to the hospital after two separate collisions on Monday.
The first happened around 5:30 p.m. at the intersection of Owens Avenue and Northwind Court. Police say a 2010 Dodge Avenger was traveling east on Owens Avenue when it struck a female pedestrian in the travel lane. The pedestrian was not using a marked crosswalk.
The driver of the Dodge remained at the scene and did not show signs of impairment. The female pedestrian was taken to the hospital with critical injuries.
Later at 7:31 p.m., a pedestrian was fatally struck by a 2004 Lincoln LS near Boulder Highway and Sun Valley Drive. Officials say a 42-year-old man and a 51-year-old man were crossing Boulder Highway on a marked crosswalk when the Lincoln hit both pedestrians.
Both were taken to the hospital where the 51-year-old died from his injuries. The 27-year-old driver remained at the scene and did not display any signs of impairment.
