DENVER — Police originally issued an alert about a hit-and-run driver they were looking for in a black pickup truck Thursday evening. But they quickly decided the case wasn’t quite what they first thought it was.

They determined later that a 13-year-old boy was rollerblading in the 9200 block of E. 13th Ave. in the Stapleton neighborhood and ran into the pickup truck.

Denver Police spokesman Sonny Jackson says the impact was so minor and the way the wind was howling, it’s possible the driver never even knew the teen ran into the truck.

Officers say it happened at about 5:50 p.m. Their initial investigation revealed the 13-year-old was at fault.


It wasn’t known if police intended to pursue the incident any further.
