On January 11th, 2018 at around 9:30 A.M.,  Aurora Police became aware of a Auto vs. Pedestrian crash, which occurred at the intersection of S. Buckley Rd. and E. Quincy Ave.

The preliminary investigation reveals that an adult male was driving a pickup truck and was turning from eastbound Quincy Ave., to southbound Buckley Rd.  The truck struck a 16-year-old female who was crossing Buckley Rd. and she became trapped under the vehicle.

Some distance later, the truck stopped and all indications are that the driver was unaware of what had occurred.  At this time, the juvenile female was alert and talking to first responders.  She was immediately transported to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries.

Tragically, the juvenile female died on January 15, 2018.

The Arapahoe County Coroners Office completed a medical examination of the young lady and results are expected in 4-6 weeks.

No drugs or alcohol on the part of the driver of the truck are suspected.  Speed does not appear to be a factor.

The driver of the truck has a valid license, current automobile insurance coverage, and is fully cooperating with the investigation.

The investigation is still open and ongoing, and therefore no further details will be released at this time.
