DENVER — Police said they're looking for a maroon or burgundy compact sedan in connection with a hit-and-run crash late Saturday that left a woman dead.

The crash was reported at 11:55 p.m. at East Evans Avenue and South Williams Street in Denver. That's about two blocks west of the University of Denver campus. 

Witnesses told Denver Police the car was traveling westbound on Evans at a high rate of speed and hit a scooter from the side and behind. The driver of the car did not stop and actually pushed the scooter for more than a half block before continuing westbound on Evans, according to DPD.

The car's windshield has a "spiderweb" crack in it, according to witnesses. It may also have front end damage on the passenger side.
