On July 5, 2021 at 8:12a.m. Aurora Police responded to a report of a one car crash involving a moving truck at East Colfax Avenue and Interstate 225.

Preliminary investigation reveals that a 20-foot moving truck, which was hauling a car trailer with a car on it, traveled off of the right side of Colfax Avenue striking the I-225 overpass abutment.  The truck then continued to travel eastbound for approximately 50 feet and struck a sign pole.  The driver of the truck was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
