Aurora police have located a vehicle of interest from a hit-and-run crash that killed a pedestrian earlier this week.

The police department on Thursday released photos of a 1989 Ford Bronco now in its possession. Authorities are still seeking the driver of the vehicle.

 

Police were called to the 200 block of North Lincoln Avenue just before 1 a.m. Sunday with reports of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle. Police and paramedics arrived to find 59-year-old Michael Brooks of Aurora in extremely critical condition. He was pronounced dead after being transported to an area hospital.

Aurora police's Critical Incident Intelligence Center had previously released still frames from city video cameras of the vehicle fleeing from the scene.

Anyone with information regarding the activities of the vehicle over the weekend is asked to call the Aurora Police Department at (630) 256-5000.

Information can also be reported anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000. Crime Stoppers offers cash rewards of up to $5,000 and anonymity to people who furnish information leading to the arrest of felony crime offenders and the capture of felony fugitives.
