DENVER – Police are questioning people who may have been involved in a hit-and-run crash at the intersection of Quebec Street and Leetsdale Drive that left a person dead Thursday evening.

The crash shut down westbound Leetsdale as police investigated. It was first reported as an auto-pedestrian crash, and the victim died sometime afterward.

Police haven’t released any details about the vehicle accused of hitting the victim, but DPD spokesman John White said, “Investigators are questioning parties who may have been involved.”
