Denver police are investigating a hit-and-run crash in downtown Denver that happened early Friday morning.

The Denver Police Department said three vehicles were involved in the crash at 9th and Lincoln St.

Initially, Denver police tweeted a pedestrian was involved in the crash, but later updated the incident and said it only involved two motorists and one parked vehicle.

Investigators said they believe the driver of a vehicle side-swiped another vehicle, which then knocked that car into another parked vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle that triggered the crash left the scene, police said. Police initially tweeted there were serious injuries and a victim was taken to a hospital.

There were partial road closures in the area and delays during the Friday rush hour.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
