Earlier today, we told you about the traffic death of John Page Hines, which authorities think may be connected to medical marijuana.
Another traffic victim, Tim Albo, is still alive, but he's in a coma due to a hit-and-run crash -- and his family is asking the public for help identifying the driver responsible.
As reported by 9News, Albo and a companion were walking near 20th Street and Chestnut when they were struck; the companion remains hospitalized in serious condition. Witnesses describe the suspect vehicle as a gray SUV.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to phone Crimestoppers at 720-913-STOP. Look below to see the 9News report:
