(September 5, 2020) On Friday, September 4, 2020, at about 8:20 P.M., Aurora Police Officers and Aurora Fire Rescue responded to the intersection of East Hampden Avenue and South Tower Road on reports of a motorcycle crash. 

Initial investigation found that a motorcycle, driven by an adult male, was traveling westbound on East Hampden Avenue.  A Chevrolet Camero, traveling eastbound on East Hampden Avenue, made a left turn onto northbound South Tower Road into the path of the motorcycle, causing a collision.  Tragically, the driver of the motorcycle was pronounced deceased on scene.  The driver of the Camero remained on scene and is cooperating with the investigation.  Currently, it appears alcohol was a factor for the driver of the Camero.    

The identity of the deceased male will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office after positive identification and notification of the family. 

Traffic Unit Investigators will continue to investigate and attempt to reconstruct the scene to determine speeds and other contributing factors of the crash. 

We are asking anyone who has dash camera footage or who was a witness to the crash to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
