Pedestrian in Crosswalk Crash Dies 
(August 26) This morning at about 5:30 a.m. officers responded to a traffic crash involving a vehicle and a pedestrian in the southbound lanes of South Tower Road at East Dartmouth Avenue.

Upon officer’s arrival they discovered an adult male victim in the roadway who was struck by a silver 2014 Toyota RAV4 while the victim was in the crosswalk. Tragically, the pedestrian died at the scene as a result of his injuries from the crash.

The driver of the RAV4 remained on scene and cooperated with investigators. Drugs, speed nor alcohol are believed to be factors contributing to the cause of the crash. Rather, the early investigation suggests the crash occurred due to the pedestrian walking against the pedestrian crosswalk signal, and the driver did not see the pedestrian.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next-of-kin have been notified.

Anyone who may have witnessed this fatal crash or otherwise have any information related to it, are asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP. Your tips there can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.00.
