(September 19, 2020) On Friday, September 18, 2020, at approximately 6:30 p.m., the Aurora Police Department and Aurora Fire Rescue responded to the intersection of South Aurora Parkway and East Arapahoe Road on a reported traffic crash involving a motorcycle and a Honda Pilot.
The initial investigation has revealed the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on East Arapahoe Road and entered the intersection on a green light. The driver of the Honda Pilot made a left turn from westbound Arapahoe Road and failed to yield to the motorcycles right-of-way causing the crash. The driver of the Honda Pilot stayed at the scene of the crash, and was later treated for minor injuries. The driver of the motorcycle, an adult female, tragically succumbed to their injuries at the scene.

Neither drugs nor alcohol are suspect by either driver, and at this time there is no indication speed was a contributing factor. This is an active and ongoing investigation being conducted by the Aurora Police Traffic Unit. Appropriate traffic charges will be determined at the conclusion of the investigation. At this time no one is in custody, or otherwise charged with any violations. 

The identity of the deceased will be released by theArapahoe County Coroner's Office after positive identification and next-of-kin notification. 

We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash, has dash camera footage, or if you have any information about this incident, to please contact theMetro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867) or reach out to the Aurora Police Department Traffic Unit.
