DENVER — Police are looking for a driver who hit and killed a person crossing the street.

The pedestrian was struck on West Evans Avenue at South Bryant Street at 12:46 a.m. Friday, police said.

Shortly before 3 a.m. the Colorado Bureau of Investigation issued a Medina Alert for a 2001 red Chevy sedan with license plate number BFO-065.

Medina alerts are issued for vehicles wanted after hit-and-run crashes. 

The 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.
