Child seriously injured in hit-and-run crash

Little information about the vehicle involved has been released.

AURORA, Colo. — The Aurora Police Department (APD) is looking for a driver who left the scene of a crash that left a young child seriously injured Thursday.

The driver fled the scene, APD said, and child had serious injuries. The child's condition is considered stable, police said.

The road has since reopened, police said.
