Fatal Crash at I-70 & Tower Rd 

On November 2, 2019 at 7:41AM, Aurora Police were dispatched to a single car crash on eastbound I-70 east of Tower Rd.  There they found a white Toyota pickup had crashed into the center median guardrail.  As a result of the crash, the male driver, who was the only occupant, was ejected.  Citizens stopped and rendered aid until the male was transported to a hospital.  The driver died as a result of his injuries yesterday, November 6th.

Speed and reckless driving were factors in this incident as a witness stated that the Toyota was speeding and passing traffic on the left shoulder when it crashed into the guardrail.  Alcohol consumption is another factor, which is being investigated by the Aurora Police Traffic Unit.

The identity of the driver will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office.
