Aurora Police: Woman found lying in street dies, likely victim of hit-and-run

AURORA, Colo. - Aurora police are searching for a vehicle that may have hit and killed a woman Sunday night.

Officers were called to Kenton Street and East 4th Way at 10:19 p.m.

When officers arrived, they found a woman lying in the street. She had apparently been hit by a vehicle.

The woman was taken to the hospital, but did not survive.

Reggie Booker lives near the intersection where the woman was hit. Booker said he arrived home after the crash and found the victim barely breathing.

"It's real sad. (I) tried to comfort her," said Booker.

"We really need to let people know the condition this poor girl was in," neighbor Jackie Taylor told 7NEWS. "Maybe somebody will have a heart and come step forward and tell somebody if they saw anything, or know anything. I hope they catch the person who did this, I really do."

Officers said they are searching for any witnesses to the crash. So far no one has come forward.

"I hope they catch the person that did this, I really do," said Taylor.

Originally, investigators were looking for a tan or beige minivan, but have since ruled it out as a suspect vehicle.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call Aurora Public Safety Communications Department at 303-627-3100.
