Crash on Iliff Avenue Kills Driver and Two Pedestrians  
(October 13) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash on East Iliff Avenue and South Buckley Road that tragically left the driver and two pedestrians deceased.

On October 13, 2021, at approximately 01:12p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a crash on East Iliff Avenue and South Buckley Road. Officers located a 2003 white Chevrolet Astro van that had been occupied by two adults, a male and a female, which had come to rest against a tree.

The driver, an adult male, was pronounced dead on scene and the passenger, an adult female, was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. It is believed the driver died as a result of a medical emergency. Two of three pedestrians were adult females and were pronounced dead on scene. Officers contacted the third pedestrian who was struck by the vehicle and transported to the hospital.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators believe the Astro van was traveling westbound on Iliff Avenue just east of South Buckley Road. The driver was experiencing a medical emergency, resulting in a loss of control of the vehicle. The van ran off the road, onto the sidewalk and struck the pedestrians. The van came to a complete stop after crashing into a tree.

The identity of the driver and two pedestrians will be released the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once a positive identification has been made and next-of-kin have been notified.

This remains an active investigation. We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoke to police, to contact the Aurora Police Traffic Investigations Unit or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867.
