Police seeking white Chevy truck involved in deadly hit-and-run

DENVER -- Denver Police have another deadly hit-and-run investigation on their hands Friday morning and officers are searching for two people.

The accident happened at East 48th Avenue and Clarkson Street where police say a driver in a white Chevrolet pickup hit a person after a confrontation and took off.

Police are asking drivers to be on the lookout for the driver. Electronic signs on freeways are warning drivers of the Medina Alert. They say the driver of the truck was a Hispanic man in his early 20s with short hair. He was driving a late 1980s model white Chevrolet two-door pickup trick with a partial license plate number of I-F-Q

Police say the victim was protecting a scrap metal yard just before 10 p.m. Thursday when they say a driver in a truck pulled up and started loading up on metal.

Police say the two started arguing and witnesses say the driver took off and hit the victim and also caused metal to fall on top of him.

The victim died at the scene.

Witnesses say the truck went northbound on Washington Street away from East 52nd Avenue. Police say another person was in the truck, but there is no word on his description.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 720-913-7867.
