BOULDER, Colo. — Boulder police are looking for any witnesses of a crash early Saturday morning that left two pedestrians with serious injuries.

Officers in Boulder Police Department's traffic unit said around 12:36 a.m. Saturday, police responded to Broadway and Regent Drive (20th Street) — just south of the University of Colorado Boulder — for a report of a hit-and-run crash. Two victims, an 18-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man, were transported to a hospital with serious injuries. Both are now stable.

Based on police's investigation, they believe a man driving a 2014 gray Ford Focus made a U-turn on Broadway, jumped the curb and struck the two people.
