Arvada Police Still in Need of Assistance in Fatal Hit and Run Accident

Arvada, CO – On June 14, 2015 at 8:53 p.m. the Arvada Police Department responded to a Hit and Run accident in the 8200 block of southbound Sheridan Blvd. The victim, Lee Barry Chandler (61 years of age), was walking west across the street when he was struck. The victim died at the scene.


Evidence recovered belongs to a 2000-2002 Honda Accord DX or base model. The few witnesses describe the vehicle as dark in color, possibly Black or Green. There is probable other driver’s side damage along with possible damage to the passenger side tires/rims when the vehicle fled the scene.


Please call either Detective Alan Stephens at 720-898-6711 or Sgt. Bob Vander Veen at 720-898-6666. We are also asking anyone who does auto body work to call if someone brings in a vehicle needing repair matching the description of the suspect vehicle.
