November 12, 2019
Case # 2019-44112

On November 11th, Aurora Public Safety Communications Center received 911 calls of a crash on southbound Interstate 222 near E. Mississippi Ave.   Responding Police and Fire personnel arrived on scene and located an adult male deceased on the highway.

The Aurora Police Traffic Investigations Unit, was notified and is investigating.

At this stage of the investigation, it appears as if the pedestrian was running west to east across the southbound lanes of the interstate, nearly under the overpass of E. Mississippi Ave.  It is unknown why he did not utilize the overpass to cross the highway.  The pedestrian was struck by at least 3 vehicles, all of which were identified, and are cooperating with the investigation.  Drugs, alcohol, or speed do not appear to be factors at this time.

The Arapahoe County Medical Examiners office responded to the scene to conduct their death investigation, and take custody of the decedent. 

The investigation is ongoing, and the release of the identity of the pedestrian will not be made, pending notification of next of kin. At that time it will come from the Coroners office.

Questions or further information should be directed to:
