DENVER -- Just months after a new law aimed to help police crack down on hit-and-runs, a new application for smartphones and tablets is being released to let the public do the same.

The Medina Alert app, available for free for both iPhones and Android devices, will allow Coloradans to report hit-and-runs in addition to several other features. The application will also allow drivers to discover the closest police station, see previous hit and run cases, and donate to victims of previous hit-and-run accidents.

"We want to challenge the impossible and possibly solve the unsolvable," said Larry Stevenson, who lead the effort to create the Medina Alert legislation.

The application also lets users connect with the latest information from local news sources and social media. To find the app for yourself just search "Medina Alert" in the iTunes Store or Android Marketplace.
