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.
