DENVER (CBS4) – A man and a woman in their 40s were seriously injured on Monday night when they were hit by a car on East Colfax Avenue.

The crash happened at about 10:30 p.m. outside the Ogden Theatre near the intersection of Colfax and Ogden Street.

The pedestrians were standing in a turn lane and waiting for a break in traffic before they were hit. Police said the driver drove away after the collision.

A witness followed the sedan — white 2007 Kia Rio — and reported the license plate number to police.

Authorities said Tuesday the car had the Colorado license plate 102-WWC.

So far it’s not clear what the extent of the injuries were to the two victims, but they are both expected to survive.
