COMMERCE CITY – Law enforcement statewide is looking for a blue Dodge 2500  after a deadly hit-and-run crash in Commerce City Friday afternoon.

The Colorado Bureau of Investigation issued the bulletin asking the public to be on the lookout for the Dodge truck after a motorcyclist was killed in a hit-and-run crash at East 72nd Place and Magnolia Street just before 4:40 p.m. The Commerce City Police Department said the motorcyclist was taken to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries. He died a few hours later.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 30’s who might have a mustache. He is believed to be driving a blue 2009 Dodge 250 truck with silver piping. The Colorado license plate is SMQ-243.

Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call the Adams County Communication Center at 303-288-1535.

The Medina Alert is part of a program that went into effect in 2014. It’s named after 21-year-old valet driver Jose Medina, who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in Denver.
