Man using walker struck by car after falling into street


A 56-year-old man who uses a walker is in critical condition after he was hit by car when he tripped and fell into the street while walking along Kipling Street in Wheat Ridge Thursday night, the Wheat Ridge Police Department said.

The man was walking along Kipling Street near West 41st Avenue when he fell into the roadway about 8:50 p.m. A passing driver exited his vehicle to help the man, but as he was, a teal sedan struck the man and continued driving.

Police said in a 2 a.m. update on Facebook that the man was still in critical condition.

Police are now searching for the driver of the teal car, who they say may not have realized they hit a person. The car could be a Chevrolet Cruze.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call JEFFCOM immediately: 303-980-7300.
