(November 1) On Sunday, November 1, 2020, at approximately 9:00 a.m., Aurora police officers responded to a single vehicle rollover crash involving a gray 2003 Ford Expedition containing six total occupants.

 

The driver of the Expedition exited eastbound Interstate 70 (I-70) onto northbound Pena Boulevard failing to safely negotiate the curve on the Pena Boulevard flyover above I-70. This caused the Expedition to leave the roadway rolling down an embankment ejecting five of the six passengers. The expedition came to a final resting place south of I-70 near a drainage canal.

 

All six occupants were transported to area hospitals where a 56-year-old male passenger was pronounced deceased. The identity of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner’s Office after positive identification and next-of-kin notifications have been made.

 

At this time investigators believe alcohol and drugs contributed to this fatal crash. This investigation is still active and on-going, and appropriate charges will be filed against the driver at the conclusion of the fatal traffic crash investigation. Until then, the identity of the driver will not be released. 


We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash, has dash cam footage, or if you have any information about this incident, please contact the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).
