DENVER — A woman died following a hit-and-run crash Monday evening and Denver police are asking for the public's help locating the suspect driver.

The Denver Police Department were still investigating the crash Monday around 10 p.m., a little more than two hours after it was first reported to law enforcement.

The crash occurred at W. Mississippi Avenue and S. Shoshone Street. The pedestrian, who was only identified as a 49-year-old woman, was transported to a hospital with serious injuries before passing away, police said.

Police said the driver, who was only identified as a male Tuesday afternoon, was in a 2014 white Dodge Ram 1500 bearing Colorado plate number ABSX81.

That driver was reportedly involved in a non-injury crash in a parking lot in the 1000 block of S. Raritan St. before he allegedly sped away from that scene, lost control of the pickup truck while turning westbound onto W. Mississippi Avenue, and hit the 49-year-old woman on the north sidewalk before once again leaving the scene of the crash.

A Medina Alert has been issued for the driver and the pickup, which was last reported seen in the area of S. Santa Fe Dr. and C-470 around 8:30 p.m. Monday night.

Anybody with information is encouraged to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
