DENVER -- One month after FOX31 featured a Denver couple's mission to find a hit-and-run driver, a KDVR viewer is answering the call to help with surprising results.

Earlier this summer, an unidentified driver plowed through an intersection at West 24th Avenue and Clay Street. After the collision, the driver in a silver Volvo briefly paused at the intersection but moments later left the scene of the accident.

Denver police were unable to get a strong description of the driver or the vehicle involved. After complications with the investigation, Andrew Collier began posting fliers in his neighborhood asking for tipsters to come forward in his fiancee's accident.

Two weeks after FOX31 aired the story of the accident and the people involved, a viewer reached out to Collier with a possible match of the car being sought.

"It hits so close to home for me," said Gina Mumford, who reached out.

After she contacted the family involved, Denver police said they were able to locate the missing driver and vehicle in the hit-and-run.

The viewer said she felt compelled to help after losing her father in a hit-and-run three years ago. Ronnie Mumford, who was attempting to cross the street near Sloan's Lake Park, was killed on the night of July 27, 2012.

Gina Mumford spoke out hoping to bring closure to a family like the closure she has been seeking since 2012.
