CSP looking for vehicle involved in fatal hit-and-run in Adams County

CSP said a pedestrian was crossing in the crosswalk at Federal Boulevard at 60th Avenue just before 2 a.m. Sunday when he was struck.

ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. — The Colorado State Patrol (CSP) is asking for the public's help in locating a vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash over the weekend.

CSP said a pedestrian was crossing in the crosswalk at Federal Boulevard at 60th Avenue just before 2 a.m. Sunday when he was struck by a southbound vehicle that left the scene.

The pedestrian, Anthony Martinez, 39, of Aurora, was declared deceased on scene, CSP said.

Investigators believe the vehicle involved is a mid-2000s Nissan King Cab pickup that is dark in color. It has front-end damage, including missing part of the grill, missing the front "Nissan" emblem, and possibly missing the front bumper, CSP said. It is believed to have an LED light bar on the roof. It was last seen going southbound on Federal after the crash.

Anyone with information related to the vehicle is asked to contact CSP at 303-239-4501, reference case number 1D201293.
