DENVER -- The search continued Wednesday morning for a driver who police said hit a 66-year-old woman on Tuesday night and then took off, leaving her lying in the street with serious injuries.
The Denver Police Department issued a Medina Alert for a vehicle and the driver, hoping someone might be able to help find the suspect.
Police said the woman was hit as she was trying to cross Park Avenue West at Tremont Place about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday. She was taken to a hospital and remains in intensive care with head and bodily injuries.
Witnesses got a good look at the vehicle and provided a description to police. It's a blue/gray 1998 Lincoln sedan with Colorado license plates QKI-285.
Police said the vehicle should have some minor damage on it to the front passenger corner and the passenger side mirror will be missing.
"This is one of those situations where it appears our victim may have been a homeless person," Denver police Lt. Rob Rock said. "She is suffering this alone."
Rock said there were multiple people in the vehicle, according to witnesses.
"We have some very good witnesses that saw all of this," Rock said.
Anyone with information or sees the vehicle is asked to call Denver Metro Crime Stoppers at 720-913-8767 or your local police department.AlertMe
