LAKEWOOD, Colo. — One person died in a hit-and-run crash at the intersection of W 14th Ave. and Carr Street late Tuesday night, the Lakewood Police Department said.

A driver crashed into a pedestrian just before midnight. The pedestrian died. Lakewood police said officers were not aware of any other injuries.

The pedestrian was 41-year-old Donald Jones, Lakewood police said. He was seriously injured in the crash. Jones was taken to a nearby hospital where he was eventually pronounced dead, according to Lakewood PD.

Both directions of W 14th Ave closed west of Carr for nearly five hours so officers could investigate what happened. The roads reopened around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses reported seeing a man driving a silver or gold sedan driving east on W 14th Ave when the suspect hit Jones. But no one got a license plate number.

Anyone with information on what happened is asked to call Detective Strandberg with Lakewood police at 303-987-7286.
