DENVER — Denver police have arrested the driver reportedly involved in a hit-and-run crash Friday morning in northwest Denver.

A Medina Alert was issued for a silver 2004 Ford Explorer and a female driver after a witness captured her license plate.

Hours later, the car was found and the woman was arrested.

It was the first Medina Alert of 2020 after a successful year in 2019.

Medina Alerts issued by year:

2017: 4
2018: 6
2019: 8

There are currently no active Medina Alerts in the state.
