Family pleads for witnesses to come forward in hit-and-run that critically injured James Pacheco

DENVER - Family members waved signs along Federal Boulevard Thursday night, pleading with witnesses to come forward with information about the hit-and-run driver that critically injured James Pacheco a week ago.

"Come Forward," urged a green poster waved by one woman.

Pacheco was struck about 6 p.m. on Dec. 12 as he walked at South Federal Boulevard and West Floyd Avenue in Denver. A 7NEWS photographer at the scene said the man's shoes were knocked off by the impact.

Pacheco lies in the hospital, still dependent on a machine to breathe.

Loved ones lined the sidewalk with candles as they waved their signs at passing cars.

"Any information -- you may think it's small but it's something that could turn out to be huge and something that we need," said Michelle Roldan.

The family told 7NEWS Denver Police are looking for a woman driving a white Jeep Cherokee.

Pacheco was one of three pedestrians hit by vehicles in the metro are in just two hours that night.
