Hit-and-run drivers are well known for leaving strangers hurt or killed by their actions -- but did Alton Kirkland also abandon his significant other and two of his children after a crash that left them injured as well?

That's among the possibilities in the latest hit-and-run in a season full of them: a crash that took the life of Jordan Sprouse, eighteen, who was about to graduate from high school.

The incident took place on Friday night near the intersection of Kipling and 32nd in Wheat Ridge and reportedly involved one Oldsmobile t-boning a second Olds, with a Lexus also involved.

Here's a Wheat Ridge Police Department photo from the scene....

The impact took the life of Sprouse, who was described by his dad in a 7News package as an aspiring rapper who planned to join the military following his upcoming graduation.

Sprouse's Facebook page is currently filled with tributes, including "Man I miss you bro" and "With a smile like wildfire and love in your heart. That's how I will always remember you. Rest easy man. We will meet again one day."

Also included are photos of Sprouse, including this one....

I dont have sympathy for him at all. Like i said he did wrong and will serve his time. So if I call all of you retards does it make it true? No its not a fact because I say it. Therefore it is a judgmental opinion. Hey man no need to explain anything to me... thats what gods 4

This isn't a "bad day" picture in his phone this is the picture taken by the police after he killed an innocent kid and then ran away from his car with his wife and kids still in it. The fact that your even sticking up for him makes me question you!

Che Walker you're an idiot, hopefully you never experience something of this magnitude. To where someone you love unconditionally is left on the road as road kill!! Its amazing how we show sympathy to these killers.. they have no empathy for their actions..

I didn't kill a kid leave my family bleeding and run like warm wet slime. I have no problem with people calling a looser a looser. Not judgement just a fact.

I wish I could look through all your phones.. find the worst pic of you, post it online, and watch how people judge you.... sure this guy did wrong, and he will get his. But dont you all realize that hate begets hate. And your all just showin your ugly judgemental side. Not your daily personality. Unless a judgemental prick is ypur personality. In which case. I kinda feel sorry for you.
