Man faces 4 charges after alleged hit-and-run

A San Diego man facing a hit-and-run charge after allegedly running over an X Games parking lot attendant on Feb. 2 will appear in court next month.

Greg Del Campo, 30, is also charged with third-degree assault, reckless driving and driving without proof of insurance.

On that last day of the Games, Del Campo allegedly tried to exit the Cozy Point parking lot at Brush Creek Road and Highway 82 through an entrance-only area. As Del Campo approached the entrance, several parking lot attendants motioned for him to stop.

Del Campo did not stop, allegedly hitting and running over parking lot attendant Mike Siegel with his 2003 Chevrolet Blazer. After the collision, Del Campo reportedly accelerated, turned the wrong way onto Brush Creek Road and sped toward Aspen.

Siegel, 35, of Snowmass Village was transported to Aspen Valley Hospital and treated and released. Witnesses said the muddy parking lot worked to Siegel’s advantage, allowing him to sink into the soft ground and be somewhat protected from the heavy car.

Del Campo was later pulled over near the Inn at Aspen by officers of the Aspen Police Department and Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office. He was notified of the charges against him and transported to Pitkin County Jail, where he immediately paid bond.

The Colorado State Patrol is investigating the incident. Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor.

Del Campo is scheduled to appear in Pitkin County Court on March 18.
