UPDATE: Fatal Hit-and-Run  

On October 12th at 6:41 a.m. a woman was struck and killed as she crossed East Iliff Avenue near I-225.  The vehicle that struck her fled the scene.  Information was gathered from witnesses and evidence at the scene.  This information was then sent out to all Aurora Police Officers.  A few District One patrol officers continued synthesizing this information and discovered a possible suspect vehicle which was registered to an apartment complex near the crash location.  Due to their continued investigation they found the suspect vehicle.

Subsequent investigation led to them finding the registered owner of the suspect car which was Jackson Donald 11/18/95 from Aurora (see attached booking photo). It was then determined he was the driver of the suspect vehicle that struck the pedestrian.  He was arrested and charged with Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injuries, a Class 3 Felony and held for bond.

information previously releases on October 12, 2019:

On Saturday October 12, 2019 at 6:40 a.m., Aurora Police officers responded to East Iliff Avenue at I-225 for a pedestrian that had been struck crossing the road.  That pedestrian was a woman who was just involved in a two-car crash prior to being fatally struck.  She was in the process of contacting the other driver from her crash, and had to walk across westbound East Iliff Avenue to do so.  As she did this, she was struck by a vehicle which fled the scene.  The woman was transported to a local hospital where she died as a result of her injuries.


Evidence gathered at the scene led investigators to believe that the suspect vehicle is a black 2015 to 2018 four-door Nissan Altima (see below images).  It will have damage to the left (driver’s side) bumper with part of it missing.  The driver’s sideview mirror will also be missing.

Anyone with information regarding this crash is asked to call APD Traffic Investigations at 303-739-6243. Anonymous tips to Denver Metro Crime Stoppers may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.00 by calling 720-913-STOP.
