Fatal Crash on South Peoria Street 
(November 12) On Thursday, November 12th, 2020, at about 9:45 P.M., Aurora Police responded to a single vehicle crash on South Peoria Street near South Parker Road.

Initial investigation reveals that a Lexus SUV was traveling northbound on S. Parker Rd. The SUV started to make a right turn onto northbound S. Peoria Street when it lost control and struck a light pole. The sole occupant of the vehicle, an adult male, was transported to an area hospital where he has been pronounced deceased. After speaking with witnesses and examining physical evidence on scene, investigators have determined that the SUV was traveling at a high rate of speed. 

Traffic Unit Investigators will continue to investigate and attempt to reconstruct the scene to determine speeds and other contributing factors. At this time, it is unknown if alcohol was involved.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after positive identification and next-of-kin notifications.
