DENVER (CBS4) – A bill that would expand a program to help police catch hit-and-run drivers easily passed in the Colorado House on Wednesday.
The “Medina” bill passed with 61 votes and not a single dissent.
The Medina Alert allows police to use the state’s highway message boards to alert drivers to the search.
The proposed program was named after hit-and-run victim Jose Medina.
