A pregnant woman six weeks away from delivery lost her baby in a hit-and-run accident Thursday afternoon.

Police in Denver are now looking for an SUV that was involved.
The hit and run happened around 5 p.m. Thursday, in the Stapleton neighborhood on the Northeast side of Denver.

Officers say the woman was in a crosswalk at E. 29th Avenue and Central Park Boulevard when she was hit. A witness said the driver went through the stop sign without stopping, and police are now saying the driver may have actually run two stop signs. The unidentified woman was taken to the Denver Health Medical Center for internal injuries, and is currently listed in serious, but stable condition.

Doctors had to perform an emergency delivery of the baby, who didn't survive.

The suspect vehicle is described as a dark blue or black SUV or pick-up truck and was last seen traveling southbound on Central Park Boulevard.

If you have any information about this incident or to the identity of the driver, please contact the Denver Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Bureau at 720-337-1000 or call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

If the information you provide leads to the arrest and charging of a wanted individual, you can receive a cash award up to $2,000.

    This is just terrible. That poor woman and her family. Prayers for the little one. Crosswalks can be very dangerous places for pedestrians. Drivers often drive through a right turn at a red light or stop sign without stopping. Drivers: Assume someone may be on the crosswalk, especially if you can't see much due to stopped cars at a stoplight! Pedestrians: Constantly watch for traffic while you walk!

    The law should be changed that a person can be charged with a death of a baby even though it is not outside the womb.

    My heart goes out to this lady whose little one has gone to heaven. This is a sad, sad story. @Nath- unfortunately the driver won't be charged in the death of the baby. The state of Colorado won't charge death unless the child is outside of the womb and able to breathe on its own. When a pregnant woman is murdered only 1 count of murder can be tried in this state and that is for the mother carrying the child.
