Fatal Crash on North Airport Boulevard 
(August 23) On Sunday, August 23, 2020, at approximately 12:30 P.M., Aurora Police Officers and Aurora Fire Rescue responded to the area of East 22nd Avenue and North Airport Boulevard on reports of a vehicle crash.

Initial investigation reveals that a Mitsubishi sedan was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of N. Airport Blvd. This sedan then collided, head-on, with a Ford F-150 who was going northbound on N. Airport Blvd. Both the Mitsubishi sedan and Ford F-150 had a sole, adult male occupant. The driver of the Ford F-150 was transported to an area hospital where he was treated and released. Tragically, the driver of the Mitsubishi sedan was pronounced deceased after being transported to an area hospital. At this time, it does not appear that speed nor alcohol was a factor for the driver of the Ford F-150. Those determinations for the Mitsubishi driver are still being investigated.

Investigators for our Traffic Unit will attempt to reconstruct the scene to determine speeds and other contributing factors of the crash. The identity of the deceased male will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office after positive identification and next-of-kin notification.

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) or reach out to the Aurora Police Department Traffic Unit.
