(August 21) On Saturday August 21, 2021 at 4:24 a.m., officers responded to a crash involving two vehicles in the intersection of East Alameda Parkway and South Airport Boulevard.

Upon arrival to the scene officers discovered a white Toyota Prius had been broadsided by a burgundy GMC Yukon. The driver of the Prius, a 25-year-old male and Aurora resident, tragically died on-scene.  The driver of the Yukon, a 24-year-old male from Florida, was transported to an area hospital with injuries where he remains at this time.

 The initial investigation suggests the Yukon was traveling westbound on East Alameda Parkway at a high rate of speed as the Prius was traveling eastbound on East Alameda Parkway, both approaching the intersection at South Airport Boulevard. As the Prius was making a northbound turn onto South Airport Boulevard, the speeding Yukon broadsided the Prius.

 Alcohol and speed, by the driver of the Yukon, are believed to be contributing factors leading to the fatal crash. The driver of the Yukon, who is still hospitalized, will be charged with Vehicular Homicide upon release from the hospital. Once he is charged his identity will be released.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next-of-kin have been notified. 

 Anyone who may have witnessed this fatal crash or otherwise have any information related to it, are asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP. Your tips there can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.00.
