Joshua Romero was on a bicycle trying to cross Talma Street at 5th Avenue Wednesday evening when a dark-colored Nissan Pathfinder struck him.

Romero was taken to the hospital for serious head injuries and broken bones.

He is in stable condition.

Four witnesses say an Hispanic woman, in her 30s and with long dark hair, was driving the vehicle.

“We did recover some evidence at the scene from the vehicle,” said Dan Ferrelli of the Aurora Police Dept.
