Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Two people are dead after two separate but related accidents in El Paso county, including a hit-and-run crash that killed one person and sent his wife and children to a hospital.

Authorities say Raul Cordoza was driving east on Colorado 94 when a 21-year-old man driving a Chevy Impala south on the Peyton highway ran a stop sign and broadsided Cordoza’s car.

Cordoza was killed. His wife and two children were taken to Memorial Hospital with serious injuries.

Their conditions are unknown.

The suspect then allegedly stole a Land Rover belonging to a good samaritan who had stopped to help, then drove some 15 miles before losing control on a curve and rolling the SUV.

That crash killed the suspect. His name hasn’t been released.
