THORNTON, CO – A man who was walking west of Walton Heath Park died after he was hit by the driver of a gray car, who then fled the scene Sunday. 

Thornton Police said this collision happened in the 2500 block of westbound East 120th Avenue, indicating they arrived at the scene around 6 a.m. Once on-site, they declared the male pedestrian dead at the scene. The victim’s name will not be released by the Adams County Coroner’s Office until his family is notified of his passing.
