Tip leads police to recover car in Aurora

DENVER - Denver police said Friday they have recovered a suspect vehicle in a hit-and-run collision that injured a motorcyclist.

The hit and run happened about 6:15 p.m. Thursday as a silver BMW 328i sedan traveling northbound on North York Street turned left in front of a Triumph motorcycle traveling southbound on York, according to a police report.

The man on the motorcycle crashed into the BMW, whose driver violated the motorcyclist's right of way, the report said.

The hit-and-run car fled the scene westbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard., failing to stop and render aid to the injured motorcyclist, or exchange driver's and insurance information, police said.

The hit-and-run victim was transported to Denver Health Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

A witness saw news reports on the hit and run and contacted the Denver Police Department with information on the suspect vehicle, police said.

Police recovered the suspect vehicle in Aurora and impounded it.

The investigation is ongoing.
