Woman formally charged in Denver hit-and-run; Amanda Suhr accused of striking pedestrian, fleeing

DENVER - Denver prosecutors say a woman accused in an August hit-and run crash involving a pedestrian was formally charged this week.

Amanda Suhr, 20, is charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury, failure to report accident, no operator's license and no proof of insurance, according to the Denver District Attorney's Office.

The charges allege that on August 16, at about 2:30 p.m., Suhr was driving north on Federal Boulevard when she struck a pedestrian who was crossing the roadway at 14th Avenue. The charges further allege that Suhr stopped briefly but then fled the scene.

Witnesses were able to provide police with information and photos that led to her arrest the following day.

Suhr remains in custody with bond set at $50,000. Her next court appearance is scheduled for August 22, where she will be advised of the charges.
