AURORA, Colo. — Police are searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a man in Aurora last month.

The Aurora Police Department said the crash happened around 12:45 p.m. Jan. 28 on South Chambers Road just south of East Tennessee Avenue. A Toyota Camry was southbound on Chambers Road, and a Toyota Corolla was trying to turn left out of a business's driveway and go northbound on Chambers Road. The Corolla driver did not yield to oncoming traffic and crashed into the Camry, police said. 

The driver and passenger of the Camry were both taken to the hospital with injuries, police said. The passenger, a 70-year-old man, died of his injuries on Friday, police said. The driver is expected to survive.

Police said the Corolla driver did not stop after the crash and has not been identified. 

Police are asking for the public's help finding the driver and the car, a silver 2014 to 2016 Toyota Corolla. They said the car should have significant damage to the driver's side and airbags deployed.
