Lakewood cop car damaged in hit-and-run

8 Apr

A driver clipped a Lakewood police car this morning as the officer was checking on an accident near C-470 and I-70.

No one was injured but the driver of the vehicle that hit the patrol car did not stop, said Steve Davis, a Lakewood Police Department spokesman. Police are looking for the hit-and-run driver and the vehicle, possibly a red Honda Pilot, an SUV.

No one was injured in the initial accident, or the following hit-and-run, Davis said.

The first accident happened at about 5:45 a.m. as snow fell in the area. The second accident, which caused minor damage to the patrol car, happened a short time later.

Based on witness information, including a possible license plate, police are checking a home in Wheat Ridge in hope of finding the SUV and the driver.
