DENVER - The suspect in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 70 was arrested Friday morning.

The van rolled.

Denver Police said people inside the van were seriously injured, but investigators did not release any more details.

The Buick was found about a mile away in an Embassy Suites parking lot off I-70 and Havana Street, but Gooden was not with the vehicle. He was apparently arrested several hours later.
