DENVER — The Denver Police Department (DPD) is pursuing criminal charges against two drivers accused of running into the same bicyclist as he tried to cross a street Friday night before leaving the scene.

The driver of the Nissan, 45-year-old Gregory Gomez, turned himself in to police Saturday and was arrested for investigation of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, according to DPD.
