AURORA, Colo. - Police have arrested a 30-year-old woman suspected in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Aurora.

Lt. Jeff Turner says a man was crossing the southbound lanes of Interstate 225 when he was struck at about 8:35 p.m. Sunday. The victim, whose name has not been released, was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
