Pedestrian hit in Denver suffers serious injuries

Denver police said the incident happened on Bannock Street and 11th Avenue.

DENVER — The Denver Police Department (DPD) said a pedestrian was hit on Bannock Street and 11th Avenue around 9:25 p.m. on Friday.

Initially, DPD said this crash was a hit-and-run, but that is no longer the case.

The crash involved a pedestrian and a motorist on Friday night, according to the police department's Twitter page. Police said the pedestrian was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

Roads in the area were closed as police investigated the crash.

DPD tweeted Saturday that the crash was a hit-and-run and that they were looking for the person who hit the pedestrian. DPD then tweeted out on Monday at 9:56 a.m. that the crash was not a hit-and-run after all and that the driver involved in the crash stayed at the scene. 

DPD has not given an update on the conditions of the victims.
