Single Vehicle Accident Leaves One Man Dead 
On 05/16/20 at 7:45 P.M. Aurora Fire Rescue and Aurora Police Officers were dispatched to a single car accident in the intersection of E. Alameda Ave. and S. Lima St.   When Aurora Fire and Police arrived they found a white Chrysler 300 partially in the street, the driver and passenger were removed from the vehicle by good Samaritans.  Both adults were transported to area hospitals, it was at the hospital where the adult passenger died of his injuries.  The driver of the vehicle is currently in critical condition. 

It appears that the Chrysler 300 was traveling west on E. Alameda Ave. and hit the north curb/gutter pan, the vehicle drove up on the sidewalk, lost control and struck a tree on the north side of the street.

This in an on-going investigation by the Aurora Police Traffic Investigations unit.  The identity of the passenger is not being released at this time, the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will make notifications at a later date.   At this time it appears that alcohol and speed will be contributing factors in this accident.  

If you witnessed this accident or have information about the accident please call Detective Chad Berger at 303-739-6623.
