Pedestrian dies of injuries; police seek truck, driver

Amber Davidovich: Witnesses saw her lying on the ground hurt as vehicle was heading away

The victim in a suspected hit-and-run crash in downtown Grand Junction early Sunday has died.

Amber Davidovich, 32, of Clifton, was pronounced dead Tuesday night at St. Mary’s Hospital.

“Amber was a wonderful mother and wife and dedicated her life to her two children, husband and family,” said Judy Shay, a friend of four years and sales representative at The Daily Sentinel. “She will be missed by many, including her co-workers at the Sentinel.”

A donor, Davidovich’s organs were expected to benefit at least seven people in need, Shay said.

An account has been established at Grand Valley Alpine Bank locations. Donations can be made in Davidovich’s name and will go to her children.

Grand Junction Police Department spokeswoman Kate Porras said Wednesday investigators were still trying to track down the driver of a dark-colored, Dodge Dakota, whom witnesses said Davidovich had tried to flag down at Ninth and Main streets around 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Those same witnesses reported they heard the vehicle leaving the area and saw Davidovich injured on the ground, police have said.

Anyone with information about the driver’s identity is asked to call 242-6707, or Mesa County Crime Stoppers, 241-STOP. Tips also can be sent online,
