14-year-old injured in hit-and-run on Sheridan

Police investigating tips, security footage


Police are investigating a hit-and-run that occurred around 9 p.m. on June 8, when a 14-year-old Arvada boy was hit by a vehicle at Sheridan Boulevard and West 64th Avenue.

The driver, who was in a black Toyota sedan with dark-tinted windows, drove north on Sheridan after hitting the boy. The boy, whose name has not been released, sustained serious injuries, but his injuries have been improving and are not life-threatening, Arvada Det. David Snelling said.

The department is following several leads to locate the vehicle and driver, including studying security camera footage from nearby parking lots, Snelling said.

The case stands out as slightly unusual, Snelling said, because the public quickly provided a good deal of information to the department.

“We've had a lot of leads and tips on this, so that's been nice,” he said.

The department requested that anybody with additional information on the accident reach Arvada Police at 720-898-6900 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP.
