(March 12) On Friday, March 12, 2021, at about 10:12 a.m., Aurora police officers responded to a traffic crash on southbound Interstate 225 just north of East Colfax Avenue.

The initial traffic investigation suggested a 44-year-old woman traveling southbound on Interstate 225 in a maroon Cadillac SUV experienced a medical episode and crashed.  Newly developed information has revealed a steel projectile, from an unknown origin, entered the Cadillac through the driver side window striking the driver, who was the sole occupant of the SUV. This caused the Cadillac to collide with another vehicle causing minor damage to that vehicle. The Cadillac continued on and collided with a concrete divider barrier.

The woman was transported to an area hospital where tragically she succumbed to her injuries. It is not yet clear if the woman died as a result of the crash into the concrete divider barrier, the injury sustained from the steel projectile or a combination of the two.  Alcohol, drugs nor speed were contributing factors of the crash.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office after a positive identification has been made, and his next-of-kin has been notified.

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