 Brighton investigators are seeking help from the public in locating a vehicle that fled the scene of a fatal hit-and-run crash which killed a pedestrian in Brighton on Sept. 19 at about 7:30 p.m.

The victim, identified as 62-year-old Michael Steven Maes of Brighton, was crossing Bridge Street near Sixth Avenue when he was struck by a light-colored sedan travelling in the westbound lanes. The vehicle that struck Maes fled the area without stopping to render aid, but is believed to be a light-colored, possibly white, four-door sedan with heavy damage to the front-end, hood, and windshield. Maes was transported to an area hospital, where he later died. Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information about the vehicle or driver involved is asked to call (303) 655-8740.
