Police release photo of truck involved in hit-and-run

A person on a scooter suffered a head injury in the Tuesday night crash, according to Denver Police.

DENVER — Denver police (DPD) released a photo of a man and vehicle that they believe were involved in a hit-and-run crash involving a person riding an electric scooter.

The crash happened at West Colfax Avenue and Court Place around 9 p.m. Tuesday night, according to DPD. 

Police said the driver did not stay on the scene of the crash. On Wednesday DPD released a photo of a black pickup truck, which they said appears to be an early 2000s model Dodge Dakota.

Also in the photo is a man standing outside the driver's side of the vehicle with the door open. He's wearing dark-colored pants and a white shirt with a jacket.

Police are trying to locate the vehicle and identify the person seen in the photo.
