WESTMINSTER, Colo. -- Police have issued a Medina Alert for a suspect who is wanted in a crash that killed a woman in Westminster on Tuesday night.

The suspect fled into a neighborhood after the accident on Wadsworth Parkway. He is wanted for vehicular homicide for intentionally driving across a median and striking a vehicle, fatally injuring a woman.

Police now identified the suspect as 19-year-old Ignacio Paul Daigle or Paul Salazar, and provided photos in hope the public can help locate him. Daigle is described as 5-foot-2 and weighing 100 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes.

Police said two men stole an F-350 pickup truck that was pulling a trailer carrying two Polaris RZR off-road vehicles from the 8600 block of 86th Circle.

The owner of the truck told dispatchers he was following the truck and that one of the off-road vehicles fell off the trailer in the 8600 block of Queen Street.

Police attempted to stop the truck in the 9400 block of Wadsworth Parkway. When officers turned on their lights and sirens, the truck crossed the median and struck a silver SUV that was traveling southbound on Wadsworth.

Jessica Holman, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the suspects was taken into custody at the accident scene. Police said Daigle fled west into a neighborhood.

An extensive search was conducted by Westminster, Broomfield and Arvada police, and reverse 911 calls were sent to more than 700 phone lines in the area, but Daigle was not found.

Police do not believe he is still in the area.

Anyone who has information on Daigle's whereabouts should call Westminster police at 303-658-4360 or Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
