DENVER — A motorcyclist was seriously injured earlier in February after a hit-and-run accident with a SUV.

At a little before 6:20 p.m. on Feb. 16, a motorcyclist crashed into a vehicle at the intersection of N. Knox Court and W. 10th Avenue, according to the Denver Police Department.

The SUV assumed right of way when it turned left onto W. 10th Avenue from Knox Court, causing the motorcyclist to collide into the right rear side of the car and fall over, said police.

Detectives said the suspect vehicle fled the scene, and headed westbound on 10th Avenue.

The SUV was last seen in the area of 8th Avenue and Lowell Boulevard.

It was described as a red- or black-colored, mid- to late-90s Chevy Blazer or similar model. It may have sustained minor damaged to the right rear bumper from the crash.

Police also gave the possible Colorado license plate number of 149WUX, but added that it could be off a number or letter.

The photographs given by law enforcement were examples of what the suspect vehicle might look like.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and may be eligible for up to a $2,000 cash reward.
