AURORA, Colo. (CBS4/AP) — Aurora police are looking for the driver of a stolen pickup truck in connection to the killing of a pedestrian. The truck was located on Monday afternoon in Denver, but the driver remains on the loose.
Police say the male pedestrian was found dead early Monday. The victim’s name has not been released pending notification of family members.
According to police, the suspect was seen driving a white Ford F-250 with Colorado license plates 297-PMQ.
A Medina Alert had been issued for a white, 2007 F-250 Ford extended cab with Colorado license plate number 297-PMQ, last seen traveling northbound on Peoria from E. 30th Avenue. The truck was found in Denver.
The suspect driver remains at large. No information has been released on the driver.
Anyone with information about the suspect driver is asked to call police.
The Medina Alert program is used to crack down on hit-and-run drivers and is named for Denver parking valet, Jose Medina who was killed by a hit-and-run driver.
The system works like an Amber Alert, using email, text and broadcasts to tell people to look out for hit-and-run suspects and their vehicles.
