DENVER — A man who was hit by a vehicle last week has been identified and reunited with his family after suffering from memory loss as a result of the crash, the Denver Police Department said.

Police said the man was hit by while walking near Speer Boulevard and West Eighth Avenue about 10 p.m. Thursday.

He was taken to Denver Health Medical Center without any serious injuries, but he couldn’t remember who he is or where he came from.

Police released a photo of the man on Tuesday asking for the public’s help in identifying him. Soon after, someone saw his picture on TV and called his family, police said.

Police did not release his identity.

“We still want to talk with a person who saw what happened because it might give us more detail,” police spokesman Sonny Jackson said. “Was he alone? All those details we are hoping to gather.”

The investigation into the crash is ongoing and there are no suspects. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
