Denver Police Search For Woman Involved In Fatal Hit & Run

DENVER (CBS4) – Police are searching for a woman after an elderly man was killed in a hit-and-run in Denver late Wednesday afternoon.

The incident happened at Kalamath and 13th Avenue at approximately 4:30 p.m.

Sonny Jackson with Denver police said the hit-and-run stemmed from some sort of confrontation in the Burger King parking lot at Colfax and Kalamath. According to Jackson, the woman backed into vehicle in the parking lot and a security guard tried to stop her. As she fled she almost hit the guard.

The woman abandoned her car after the accident and fled on foot. Police were interviewing other people in the woman’s vehicle, which was a rental out of Colorado Springs. Police haven’t released the woman’s identity, although they believe they know who she is.

Nobody else was in the elderly man’s car.
