(September 19) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash on Interstate 225 that tragically left one teenager deceased, another injured.

On September 19, 2021, at approximately 08:50 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a report of a crash on Interstate 225 near the East 6th Avenue exit. Officers located a Chevrolet Silverado that had been occupied by two young persons, a man and a woman, who are both 17-years-old. Officers attempted to perform lifesaving measures on the person whom we believe is the driver before he was transported to the hospital. This man was tragically pronounced deceased a short time later. The woman remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators believe the Silverado was traveling northbound on Interstate 225 just north of East 6th Avenue. The driver lost control of the vehicle, causing the vehicle to roll-over at least once, resulting in both occupants being ejected. Aurora Police Traffic Investigators also believe that the Silverado was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were additional contributing factors. 

The identity of the driver is not being released at this time. The Arapahoe County Coroner will release the name once a positive identification has been made and next-of-kin have been notified.

This remains an active investigation. We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoke to police, to call the Aurora Police Traffic Investigations Unit or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers, tipster can remain anonymous and still be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.

Upon arrival, officers found two occupants inside of a Chevrolet Malibu. Those two individuals, only being identified as adults, were pronounced deceased on scene. Additionally, a Chevrolet Cruz was also located, and that driver was transported to the hospital with injuries sustained in the crash.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators believe the Chevrolet Cruz was traveling eastbound on East 38th Avenue. The Chevrolet Malibu was making a left-hand turn from North Windsor Drive to go westbound on East 38th Avenue. The Cruz then collided with the Malibu.

(August 26) This morning at about 5:30 a.m. officers responded to a traffic crash involving a vehicle and a pedestrian in the southbound lanes of South Tower Road at East Dartmouth Avenue.

Upon officer’s arrival they discovered an adult male victim in the roadway who was struck by a silver 2014 Toyota RAV4 while the victim was in the crosswalk. Tragically, the pedestrian died at the scene as a result of his injuries from the crash.

The driver of the RAV4 remained on scene and cooperated with investigators. Drugs, speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors contributing to the cause of the crash. Rather, the early investigation suggests the crash occurred due to the pedestrian walking against the pedestrian crosswalk signal, and the driver did not see the pedestrian.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next-of-kin have been notified.

Anyone who may have witnessed this fatal crash or otherwise have any information related to it, are asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP. Your tips there can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.00.

(August 21) On Saturday August 21, 2021 at 4:24 a.m., officers responded to a crash involving two vehicles in the intersection of East Alameda Parkway and South Airport Boulevard.

Upon arrival to the scene officers discovered a white Toyota Prius had been broadsided by a burgundy GMC Yukon. The driver of the Prius, a 25-year-old male and Aurora resident, tragically died on-scene.  The driver of the Yukon, a 24-year-old male from Florida, was transported to an area hospital with injuries where he remains at this time.

 The initial investigation suggests the Yukon was traveling westbound on East Alameda Parkway at a high rate of speed as the Prius was traveling eastbound on East Alameda Parkway, both approaching the intersection at South Airport Boulevard. As the Prius was making a northbound turn onto South Airport Boulevard, the speeding Yukon broadsided the Prius.

 Alcohol and speed, by the driver of the Yukon, are believed to be contributing factors leading to the fatal crash. The driver of the Yukon, who is still hospitalized, will be charged with Vehicular Homicide upon release from the hospital. Once he is charged his identity will be released.

On July 9, 2021 at 10:00 p.m., officers responded to a car crash involving a blue MINI Cooper and a red Honda Civic on eastbound East Colfax Avenue one half of a mile east of Himalaya Street.

The initial investigation suggests the MINI Cooper was traveling eastbound on East Colfax Avenue at a high rate of speed then ran through a red light at Tower Road. Meanwhile, the driver of the Honda Civic was stopped on the eastbound shoulder of East Colfax Avenue facing westbound attempting to make a U-turn back into the proper direction on East Colfax Avenue.  While making the U-turn the Honda Civic was broadsided by the MINI Cooper. Investigators have not yet been able to determine to what degree, if any at all, that speed, alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash. 

The 51-year-old male driver of the MINI Cooper was transported to a local hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.  His identity will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next-of-kin have been notified. 

The 32-year-old female driver of the Honda Civic was extricated from her vehicle and transported to the hospital with serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
