A 67-year-old man is accused of hitting and killing a woman with a Winnebago and then fleeing the scene, prompting a statewide alert as authorities searched for him.

The victim was walking by the intersection of Jewell Avenue and Tejon Street in southwest Denver Wednesday afternoon when the Winnebago barreled onto the sidewalk and hit her. She survived only long enough to reach the hospital. Police say instead of trying to help the dying woman, the driver kept going and was last seen heading east on Jewell.

The Denver Police Department issued a Medina Alert at 4:30 p.m.
