DENVER (KDVR) — Federal Boulevard has seen multiple hit-and-run crashes in recent days.
A reward is being offered. On Feb. 22, a pedestrian was hit crossing South Federal Boulevard at West Dartmouth Avenue. The injuries are considered serious. Denver Police say the driver left the scene.
The incident occurred near Toro Taxes.
“It’s frightful to think something like that can occur,” franchise owner Davia Contreras said.
Contreras said her business will do its part to help find the driver.
“It concerns me, because I see a lot of underage people just walking back and forth, crossing the street,” she said.
On Feb. 27, police responded to a separate hit-and-run crash at South Federal Boulevard and West Florida Avenue.
Federal Boulevard part of Denver’s high-injury network
Denver Streets Partnership released a statement about the two crashes.
“We, the Denver Streets Partnership are deeply saddened, but not at all surprised by the two recent crashes, resulting in serious injuries to people walking on Federal Boulevard,” reads the group’s statement. “Federal Boulevard is part of the city’s high-injury network and dangerous, by design. Serious injury and fatal crashes will continue to happen, until the city, fundamentally, re-designs the street to be safe for all users.”
Late Thursday night, Denver Police say they responded to another hit-and-run crash near the intersection of South Federal and West Amherst Avenue.
If you have any information about any of the incidents, you are urged to call Denver Metro Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.
