Man fleeing traffic stop in Palisade might have drowned, authorities say – The Denver Post

GRAND JUNCTION — Authorities say a man who jumped into a canal while fleeing state troopers in western Colorado might have drowned.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports the man, whose name has not been released, was pulled over at the Palisade exit of Interstate 70 on Tuesday evening and ran away down a small embankment while troopers searched his car.

Trooper Dan Chermok says the man went into the Highline Canal but had a hard time swimming. He went underwater, and troopers did not see him resurface.
