DENVER (CBS4)- Police in Denver believe they’ve arrested the driver wanted in a hit-and-run crash Thursday night on Interstate 70.

The crash happened on the off ramp of I-70 near Peoria about 8:45 p.m.

Police said a white Buick rear-ended a minivan which caused that van to rollover onto its side.

There were four people inside the minivan at the time of the crash. The driver of that van was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.

“Also in the van was an adult female and two juveniles. They did go to the hospital but their injuries were minor,” said Denver Police Detective Chad Kuroda.

The driver of the Buick sped away.

Police tracked down the Buick in a nearby neighborhood at 44th and Havana. That vehicle had no license plates.

Police said they caught up with the suspect driver Thursday night but haven’t released where he was arrested.

Jamar Gooden is being held for suspicion of felony hit and run and vehicular assault.

Gooden has a criminal history that includes arrests for assault, domestic violence, and violation of protection order.
