THORNTON, Colo. — Police were looking for the driver in a hit-and-run in the Home Depot parking lot that left a 63-year-old man in critical condition.

It happened Sunday outside the store at 10003 Grant St. That’s near 104th Avenue and I-25.

Witnesses told police Bob Banka was trying to get into his Ford Ranger pick-up truck when a red Chevrolet Cavalier with black bumpers hit the passenger side door of the truck.

The force of the crash threw Banka to the ground and he suffered a severe head injury.

The suspect vehicle fled from the Home Depot parking lot.

A witness says the car had heavy front-end damage and was leaking radiator fluid as it drove away. It also looked like the airbag on the passenger’s side in the suspect vehicle deployed. The Cavalier also had a broken headlight.

The victim was in Swedish Medical Center Monday in critical condition.

Anyone with information can call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
