Family honors bicyclist killed in Denver hit-and-run as police search for suspect

The fatal crash happened at West 38th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard Friday night.

DENVER — Family and friends of Logan Rocklin are asking for the public's help to track down the driver who hit and killed him as he was riding his bicycle in Denver Friday night. 

The Denver Police Department said the crash happened around 8:30 p.m. Friday at the intersection of West 38th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. 

Police said the bicyclist, who family identified as Rocklin, was crossing Sheridan in the crosswalk on the south side of the intersection when he was hit by the driver of a dark mid-sized SUV that had failed to stop at the red light.  

Wednesday, Rocklin's family put a ghost bike at the intersection to mark the spot.

The driver left the scene of the crash after initially stopping, according to police. That driver was last seen headed northbound on Sheridan.

Police identified two possible "vehicles of interest" in connection with the case. Both vehicles are pictured below. Police said the vehicle involved may have damage to the driver's side.
