The Colorado Bureau of Investigation distributed a Medina Alert Sunday morning to get the public's help in finding a white Jeep Grand Cherokee thought to be the at-fault vehicle in a fatal collision with a pedestrian.
The pedestrian, a 40- to 50-year-old Hispanic man, was hit by a vehicle traveling eastbound on Bowles Avenue near the intersection of Santa Fe Drive at 3:38 a.m. The man passed away.
The driver of the Grand Cherokee drove away from the scene going westbound on Bowles, according to the Littleton Police Department.
The Grand Cherokee is believed to be the model built between 2016 and 2021. Police confirmed for CBS News Colorado that the Jeep should have damage to its driver's side front fender.
The Medina Alert system was passed into law by the Colorado legislature following the death Jose Medina in 2011. Medina was a parking valet who was hit by a vehicle near 10th Avenue and Lincoln Street in Denver. That vehicle left the scene.
Anyone with information about the white Grand Cherokee is asked to call Littleton PD at (303) 794-1551.
