One Dead After Two Car Crash at Buckley & Mansfield 
(December 11) One man is dead following a two-car crash that closed the intersection at South Buckley Road and East Mansfield Avenue for multiple hours.

On December 10, 2022, at about 8:45 p.m. Aurora 911 began receiving calls about a two-car crash in the intersection of South Buckley Road and East Mansfield Avenue. Callers reported that one car was on fire and the driver was still inside.
When officers arrived on scene, they found a Dodge Charger that was engulfed in flames and a Honda Accord. The driver of the Charger was sadly, deceased on scene.
