DENVER (AP) - The Denver Police Department is teaming up with body shop owners across the city in an effort to solve serious hit-and-run crashes.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/ZqwNCv ) investigators will email participating body shops vehicle and damage descriptions following such crashes. So far, 34 body shops have signed up for the program.

Lt. Robert Rock with the traffic investigations unit says alerts will only be sent for accidents involving serious bodily injury or fatalities and when there is enough information to make a possible match.

Shop owners are being asked to delay repairs until police arrive if they suspect one of their customers was involved in a hit-and-run crash.

Rock says police have investigated seven fatal hit-and-run cases this year, and two remain unsolved.
