Police release photos of 'persons of interest' in deadly hit-and-run crash

A woman was hit by the driver of a red Audi who ran a red light, according to Denver Police.

DENVER — Denver Police released photos Thursday of several "persons of interest" related to a deadly hit-and-run crash earlier this week.

Around 10:45 p.m. on Monday, a woman was struck and killed while in a crosswalk by a driver who ran a red light and then left the scene, according to the Denver Police Department.

The crash happened at the intersection of West 10th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard in southwest Denver, DPD said in a tweet. According to police, the victim was crossing Sheridan Boulevard in the crosswalk when she was hit by the driver of a red Audi sedan that was traveling northbound.

The Audi driver continued north on Sheridan and did not stop after hitting the woman, a police spokesman said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Thursday, police released photos showing two men and a woman and said they were "persons of interest" related to the crash. They're asking for help identifying them.

The Audi believed to be involved in the crash was later found unoccupied in the 5000-block of West 14th Avenue, which is about a half-mile north of the crash scene. Police released a photo of it Thursday.
