DENVER -- A Medina Alert was issued for a vehicle after the driver reportedly left the scene of a hit-and-run crash involving a motorcycle late Saturday afternoon in Denver.   

Investigators are looking for a dark blue or black 2008 Honda sedan with Colorado plates 254QUB. Officers said the suspect driving the vehicle is a white or possibly Hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties. 

The vehicle may have light damage to the passenger side. 

Officers were at the scene of the crash in the area of eastbound 6th Avenue and I-25 at around 5 p.m. The victim in the crash was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Medina alert is named for valet driver Jose Medina who was killed in a hit-and-run in 2011.  A taxi driver witnessed the event, followed the driver and provided the license plate number to police which led to the capture and arrest of the suspect. Medina alerts are issued for vehicles wanted after hit-and-run crashes. Medina alerts started in the city of Denver, but are now a state-wide project.
