Crash at Colfax and Moline leaves pedestrian dead 
(May 16) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal auto pedestrian crash that occurred near E. Colfax Avenue and N. Moline Street.

On Monday, May 16, 2022 at about 10:35 p.m., Aurora Police received calls about a crash involving a pedestrian near the intersection of E. Colfax Avenue and N. Moline Street. When officers and Aurora Fire Rescue arrived on scene they found an adult male lying in the roadway. The adult male was transported to a local hospital but tragically he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the hospital..

The preliminary investigation revealed that the adult male was crossing Colfax, east of the crosswalk on Moline, a Toyota Camry was travelling eastbound on Colfax through the intersection on a green light. The driver, an adult male, did not see the pedestrian as he stepped into traffic. The driver was unable to stop in time and struck the pedestrian. The driver of the Toyota Camry remained on scene and was cooperative with the officers. 

It is early in the investigation and there are still many steps to be completed. The Aurora Police Traffic Section will determine the circumstances of the crash and if criminal charges are appropriate. At this time, it is unknown if speed or intoxication were a factor in the crash.

The identification 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.

Please contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section if you witnessed this crash or have dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoken to investigators. 

This is the 20th traffic related fatality this year.
