The police found the car in the area of Jason Street and Louisiana Avenue in Denver. The driver is still at large at this time.

According to police, 32-year-old Laura McDermott was walking across South Broadway at East Cedar Avenue when she was hit by a vehicle traveling southbound on South Broadway.

The driver fled the scene without helping the injured pedestrian or notifying police. McDermott was taken to Denver Health Medical Center and pronounced dead.

Video released on Tuesday showed what police believed to be the car involved passing a security camera. Shortly after the vehicle passes the camera's frame of view, several people can be seen running towards where the incident occurred.

The vehicle was located near some train tracks. It was hidden behind trees.

People who work in the area said the vehicle had heavy front end damage. One man, who didn't want us to identify him, said the front windshield was busted out.

If you have information regarding the driver of the vehicle, call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) or text 274637 and then title DMCS and enter your message.
