Victim In Fatal Hit & Run Was A 32-Year-Old
DENVER (CBS4) – There may be new evidence in a deadly hit-and-run crash in Denver over the weekend.
Laura McDermott, 32, was killed early Sunday morning when she was struck by a car while she was walking with her boyfriend at Cedar and South Broadway. The car drove off after the fatal collision.
A business owner who owns a HALO camera that’s positioned at the corner of the intersection says he has video showing cars that were going by on Broadway at the time of the crime, but so far police haven’t approached him about using the video as evidence.
McDermott was an esthetician, and her friend Crystal Brummond told CBS4 she was at the spa the two work at together moments before she was killed.
“There was a red light. They were crossing the street. The car didn’t slow down or stop after it hit her,” Brummond said.
Brummond told CBS4 the victim’s boyfriend was only a few weeks away from asking her to marry him.
Police said they suspect the car was speeding. They said the vehicle was a beige or gray four door sedan, possibly a Toyota, missing a front passenger-side turn signal and significant damage to the front passenger-side.
Anyone with more information about the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).
