Aurora Police search for driver in fatal hit-and-run accident | News
AURORA, Colo. -- Aurora Police are searching for the driver involved in a hit-and-run accident that killed a man about 2:30 am on Sunday.
The crash happened on Havana Street just south of 1st Avenue. Someone passing by saw 41-year-old Royce Wallace lying on the street and called police.
He was taken to a hospital, but died a few hours later. "My son wasn't meant to go like that," said Wallace's mother, Debra McClain. She gathered with family members at her home on Sunday, and is asking the public to help find the driver. Officers say right now they don't have much to go on.
"We have no suspect description. The people who found him just found him lying in the street. We collected what little debris is there. We'll look at that in the next coming days to see if we can determine what kind of vehicle that is," said Lt Chuck DeShazer.
He says Wallace was not in the crosswalk and the lighting along that part of Havana is not good, but hit-and-run involving death is a class three felony. Wallace's family hopes someone will come forward with information about his death.
"Whoever ran over my son, and just left him like that, please find him," said McClain.
