On May 19th at 4:00 PM, Officers were dispatched to East Arapahoe Road and East Briarwood Place on a report of a single vehicle roll over accident. Officers determined that a Blue 2001 Nissan Maxima was Westbound on East Arapahoe Road at a high rate of speed.  The Maxima swerved from the right lane to the center lane for an unknown reason.  It went back into the right lane, struck the curb and lost control.  The Maxima then went across the road, struck the center median and went air born where it flipped and landed on its roof.

The 27 year old male driver sustained serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital.  His 27 year old male passenger was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.  The names of both occupants are not being released at this time.

This investigation is being handled by the Aurora Police Departments Traffic Section.  It appears that speed and alcohol are both factors in this crash.  Westbound East Arapahoe Road was closed at South Gartrell Road during the investigation.
