AURORA, Colo. — Police in Aurora are looking for the driver of a 2013 Hyundai Elantra who they say was involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash Sunday morning.

It happened around 7:12 a.m. at the intersection of E. Iliff Avenue and S. Havana Street.

Police said the driver of a 2000 Honda Accord, a 28-year-old man, was killed in the crash. His identity has not been released.
