LAKEWOOD, Colo. — Police are looking for the driver of an SUV that hit and seriously injured a pedestrian in Lakewood Sunday afternoon. 

The Lakewood Police Department said the crash happened just after noon. A man was crossing West Colfax Avenue just west of Sheridan Boulevard when he was hit by an older-model, four-door Chevrolet Blazer. 

Police said the driver of the SUV left the scene headed toward Denver.

The victim, a 61-year-old man, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The suspect is described as a white woman, possibly in her 50s, with long brown hair. 

The Blazer had an aftermarket green hood, an aftermarket green fender on the passenger side and tan rockers. The rest of the car may have been black, police said. It had no license plate.
