(October 29) The Aurora Police Department Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash that occurred on the 1700 block of Peoria Street, leaving one pedestrian dead.

On October 28, 2021, at approximately 07:51 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a crash in the 1700 block of Peoria Street. Officer located a 38-year-old male who was struck by a vehicle. The victim was transported to a local hospital in serious condition, where he later died from his injuries.

The initial traffic investigation revealed that the male was crossing the 1700 block of Peoria Street, not in a designated crosswalk, when a vehicle struck the male.
