Teen Boy Dies After Being Struck By Vehicle 
On October 18, 2021 at approximately 7:50p.m. Aurora Police responded to a call of a person struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of Village Green Park which is located at 1300 South Chambers Circle.  It was reported that the driver of the vehicle had fled the scene on foot.

Upon arrival first responders located a 14-year-old male trapped underneath a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country Mini-van.  The Aurora Fire Rescue Department had to extricate the male from under the vehicle. Sadly, the young man did not survive the crash and was pronounced at the scene.  

Investigators from the Traffic Section believe that the mini-van, which was a stolen vehicle, was being driven by a juvenile female at the time of the crash.  The victim was hanging on the front of the vehicle when he slid off, fell underneath, and was then run over.  

The driver of the vehicle eventually returned to the scene of the crash and spoke with investigators. At this time no arrests have been made and the investigation is on-going.

The identity of the victim is not being released at this time. It will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next of kin have been notified.
