Fatal Rollover Crash on I-70 near I-225 Off Ramp 

(September 28) On Monday, September 28, 2020, at about 4:20 A.M., Aurora Police Officers and Aurora Fire Rescue were called to the west-bound lanes of I-70 at the off ramp for south-bound I-225 for a motor vehicle crash. 

Initial investigation revealed a Ford pickup truck was traveling west-bound on I-70 near the I-225 south-bound off ramp and lost control, causing it to roll over.  One adult female passenger was ejected from the truck and tragically, was pronounced dead on scene.  Another passenger, an adult male, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.  It appears that speed may have been a contributing factor. 

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner’s Office after positive identification and notification of the family. 

Traffic Unit Investigators will continue to investigate and attempt to reconstruct the scene to determine speeds and other contributing factors. 

We are asking anyone who witnessed this crash, has dash cam footage, or any information about this incident to please contact the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
