One man dead and another seriously injured when driver plows into group riding scooters before fleeing scene

ONE man has died and another left seriously injured when a driver plowed into a group who were riding scooters before fleeing the scene.

Cops are hunting for the driver after the incident took place in downtown Denver at roughly 1.36am on Monday morning.

Lt Robert Rock said that four people were riding scooters when the driver of a silver two-door Chevy Cobalt veered into the lane they were traveling in, the Denver Channel reported.

Two riders were struck by the vehicle where one was thrown to the sidewalk and died and the other was seriously injured.

The other members of the group left unscathed, but the vehicle fled the scene.

"We suspect that this vehicle has heavy front-end damage and it is also going to have a damaged side (driver's ) view mirror," Rock told the outlet, adding that the front windshield might also be damaged.

Investigators are looking at damage they obtained from the incident.

"Right now, what we would like is for this driver to simply give us a call and let us know what happened," he said.

"We understand accidents happen. We want to be able to talk with this individual about this, before this turns into a much more serious incident than it already is."

The driver is wanted for vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a crash that resulted in a death.
