On December 9th, 2018, at about 5:45 PM, Patrol Officers responded to a call of a car that hit a wheel chair at East Colfax Avenue and Boston Street.  They found a 62 year old male that had tried to cross northbound across East Colfax Avenue in the street.  Witnesses told them that the vehicle that struck the wheel chair fled the scene.  A short time later, the vehicle was located about a block away unoccupied.  At about that same time, the driver of the vehicle returned to the scene. 

The vehicle was a red 1998 Isuzu Rodeo.  The driver and sole occupant was not injured.  The person in the wheel chair was transported to an area hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.

Traffic Investigators are handling this investigation.  It will be some time before appropriate charges are determined.  At this point, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this crash.  The names of those involved are not being released at this time.

The Aurora Police Traffic Section would like to give an update regarding the incident that occurred on November 16, 2018, in the area of South Uravan Street and East Kentucky Avenue.

Immediately after the mother tragically backed over her one year old son, she grabbed her child, placed him in the car, and called 911. The mother then began to drive to the nearest hospital all while still on the phone with the 911 dispatcher. At the direction of the 911 dispatcher, who had already started police and fire, directed the mother to pull into the parking lot of the Shell Gas Station at South Buckley Road and East Alameda Parkway. This is where she was met by officers and rescue personnel who began to administer aid to the young boy. 

This incident appears to be a heartbreaking accident. Aurora Police Detectives will continue to investigate this thoroughly and determine if criminal charges are appropriate.
