AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) — A 70-year-old man died after an Aurora hit-and-run crash, and police are still looking for the driver responsible.
The man died on Friday, nearly a week after the crash, according to the Aurora Police Department. A second person in the vehicle was also hurt but survived.
Investigators determined the driver of a silver Toyota Corolla is suspected in the crash and are asking for the public’s help. The Corolla is believed to be a 2014-16 model, “which should have significant damage to the driver’s side of the car and airbags deployed,” according to a release from the department.
