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.

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."
