Pedestrian dead after being struck by vehicle at Colfax and Moline 
(April 24) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal auto pedestrian crash that occurred near E. Colfax Avenue and N. Moline Street.  

On Saturday, April 23rd, 2022, at about 10:11p.m., Aurora Police responded a crash involving a pedestrian near the intersection of East Colfax Avenue and N. Moline Street.  The pedestrian was transported to the hospital with serious injuries which sadly, they did not survive.  

The preliminary investigation revealed a Toyota FJ Cruiser was traveling east on E. Colfax Avenue just west of N. Moline Street when they struck an adult male pedestrian that was crossing the roadway.  The driver of the Toyota has been identified and cooperative with officers. 

It is unknown if speed or intoxication were a factor in the crash.  This is an open and ongoing investigation, the Aurora Police Traffic Section will determine the circumstances of the crash and if criminal charges are appropriate at the conclusion of the investigation. 

The identifications of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office once they have been positively identified and their next-of-kin have been notified.

We ask anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash, and has not yet spoken to police, to contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section.
