DENVER – Police are holding a man for investigation on vehicular homicide charges, among others, after a deadly hit-and-run crash that happened Monday night.

Tyler White, 25, is being investigated on vehicular homicide, DUI and leaving the scene of an accident charges after he allegedly killed a woman in a crash near I-70 and Colorado Boulevard just after 6:30 p.m. Monday.

The crash involved three other vehicles, and White allegedly fled the scene on foot afterward.

About three hours after the crash, a person called dispatch to report a man matching White’s description was seen at City Park.

Police spokesman Lt. Robert Rock said EMS workers arrived to find White nude and in the lake at the park. He was taken to an area hospital to be treated for his injuries.

Rock said White is not a Denver resident and was here from Tennessee, likely looking for work.

Police have not named the person killed in the crash, but said Tuesday there were no other injuries.
