Suspect in deadly Englewood hit-and-run in custody

Police said the driver hit a pedestrian and then hit a building, causing their car to roll over. Two women in the car were seriously hurt.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The suspect in a hit-and-run that left a man dead in Englewood Saturday morning turned himself in Sunday evening, Englewood Police Department (EPD) said.

According to police, officers were called to a rollover accident in the 4400 block of South Broadway around 8:37 a.m. 

They determined that a car was heading south down South Broadway at high speed when it collided with a man who was pushing a bike across the street before hitting a brick building at 4455 South Broadway. 

The car then rolled over, police said, and came to rest on its roof in the southbound lanes of traffic. 

Police said a man, identified as 20-year-old Edwin Solano of Thornton, was seen running from the car. 

Two teens were extricated from the car and taken to the hospital with serious injuries. One of the teens had a broken leg, according to an arrest affidavit. The other teen suffered a spinal injury and may never feel her leg again or have full use of them, the affidavit says.

The man who was hit by the car died at the scene, according to EPD. His name will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office. 

A warrant was issued for Solano's arrest, who was wanted on suspicion of the following charges, according to police:

  • Failure to remain at the scene after an accident involving death
  • Failure to remain at the scene after an accident involving serious bodily injury

Solano turned himself in Sunday night and is in police custody, EPD said.

Broadway was closed in both directions. Police said the road is back open, but part of the sidewalk in front of the building that was hit will be closed until Monday. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call EPD at 303-761-7410.
