DENVER — Police were investigating a hit-and-run crash that left a pedestrian with very serious injuries late Thursday night.
It happened at about 9 p.m. near S. Federal Blvd. and W. Florida Ave.
Police say two vehicles hit the pedestrian who was crossing Federal at Florida. One vehicle, a silver sedan, stopped a few blocks away.
The second car, described as a Subaru Impreza WRX did not stop. Police say a mirror left at the scene may be the key to finding that suspect.
Investigators issued a “Medina Alert,” which put the word out to Denver taxi cab drivers to be on the lookout for the suspect vehicle.
