COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- A fatal hit-and-run in Colorado Springs led police to issue pleas to the public for help. 

Officers said Monday they're on the hunt for a gray Ford Escape which may be a 2008 model. The vehicle was last seen in the area of the 1000 block of Alexander Road. 

The vehicle, which slammed into a person crossing the street just north of the Citadel mall, would likely have front end damage and a broken windshield.
