Injury Crash involving AFD vehicle - S. Havana St. @ E. Alameda Ave 

Aurora, CO. - On August 28th, 2016, at about 1:20 p.m., Aurora Police responded to the intersection of E. Alameda Ave. and S. Havana Street on a report of a two vehicle crash.  Upon arrival investigation revealed an Aurora Fire Department vehicle, a marked Ford F350 truck, driven by Battalion Chief Jon Hill, 49, was responding to an emergency call for service with lights and siren activated northbound on S. Havana Street approaching the intersection of E. Alameda Ave.  Chief Hill slowed and proceeded left around stopped vehicles and proceeded into the intersection.  A white in color Toyota Corolla, driven by Freda Adjei, 65 of Aurora, was westbound on E. Alameda Ave. on a green signal and broadsided the Ford before it could clear the intersection.  Adjei was unresponsive after the impact and was extricated from the vehicle by AFD.  She was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment and later determined not to have suffered any life threatening injuries.  Chief Hill was also taken to a local hospital to be evaluated and was later released. 

The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating this crash under report # 2016-34423.  Based on our investigation we believe the proximate cause of this crash was Adjei’s failure to yield the right of way to an emergency vehicle.
