DENVER — A child was seriously injured in a vehicle versus pedestrian hit-and-run Friday night.

At about 9:45 p.m. Friday, a child was struck by a small black SUV traveling eastbound near the intersection of W. 23rd Avenue and N. Decatur Street, according to a crime alert released by the Denver Police Department.

The child was with his family attending a fireworks show in the area when the incident happened, police said.

The SUV fled the area of the accident and was last seen traveling eastbound on W. 23rd Avenue past Clay Street.

Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as a crossover-type SUV, similar to a Nissan Murano or GMC Terrain. It had a white sticker on the rear windshield similar to the one in the picture above.

In a tweet, DPD said the victim sustained a broken bone.

Police asked for anyone with information regarding the accident to contact the Denver Police Department Traffic Investigations Bureau at 720-337-1000 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

      Would you be so kind to explain exactly what an “neo con” is? I am sure it`s a term you heard somewhere,and you thought it would be catchy to use on a blog. Don`t be shy Patty , enlighten us please!

        Dick Cheney huh? I’m guessing your IQ is in the single digits. Go play with your guns in your bomb shelter, loser.

        My five year old nephew knows the definition of mediator and you don’t? Sad. As for neo con, neo (a prefix) means “new” while con is short for conservative. A prefix is added to the beginning of a word to alter its meaning. With your line of questioning and low IQ, it’s no wonder that the ten poorest, least educated states are red (by “red” I mean they are conservative). Good talk.

      Very good Patty! You looked in a dictionary for the first time in your life! Your five year old nephew by your sister?
      if she is Mexican, she was at least 12 when he was born I bet! The people that “Moderate” blogs, do not mediate at all, mediate involves negotiation..or where your`re from negocios!
