On December 2nd, 2018, at about 5:16 PM, an Aurora Police Officer in a marked Police Vehicle on routine patrol spotted a reported stolen vehicle from Denver in the area of East Colfax Avenue and Scranton Street.  The stolen vehicle was a gold 1998 Toyota Rav 4 going east on East Colfax Avenue.  The Officer got behind the vehicle at which point it took off continuing eastbound at a high rate of speed.  The Officer never activated his emergency lights or attempted to stop the Toyota before it sped away.

The Officer could see that the vehicle was weaving in and out of traffic.  The vehicle was about a half mile away when the Officer saw a large cloud of dust that was caused by the Toyota crashing into another car.  The Officer went to the crash scene and rendered aid to the occupants of both vehicles until Aurora Fire Rescue arrived.

The investigation revealed that the Toyota was eastbound East Colfax Avenue at a high rate of speed.  It failed to stop for the red light at the northbound I225 off-ramp.  A silver 2008 Hyundai Sonata was going north across East Colfax Avenue when it was struck by the Toyota.

The male driver and sole occupant of the Toyota was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries.  Numerous charges are pending against him.  The female driver and sole occupant of the Hyundai was transported to an area hospital with non life threatening injuries.  The names of those involved are not being released at this time.

The Aurora Police Department is asking that any witnesses contact us at 303 739 6374.
