APD Investigating Fatal Crash Involving Moving Truck on Colfax Ave 
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.  

Investigators do not believe that speed or alcohol were contributing factors. It is suspected that the driver experienced a medical incident prior to the crash.  His identity is not being released at this time and will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next of kin have been notified.
