(August 23) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash that occurred early this morning along the Hampden corridor.

On August 23, 2021, at approximately 02:40 a.m., Aurora Police responded to a report of a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of East Hampden Avenue and South Tower Road. Upon arrival officers found that one of the occupants of the vehicle has been ejected. Additionally, a second person was also located with injuries sustained in the crash. Both occupants are only being identified as juvenile males.

Investigators believe the vehicle, an Infiniti sedan, was traveling eastbound on East Hampden Avenue. The vehicle entered the South Tower Road Intersection and lost control. The Infiniti veered to the right side of the roadway and struck a tree. After striking the tree, it became airborne and hit a light pole just before coming to rest after striking a retaining wall. The passenger of the vehicle was ejected during the crash and pronounced deceased on scene. The driver of the vehicle was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

Investigators believe that high speeds are a contributing factor to this crash. This remains an active investigation and no charges have been filed at this time.

The identity of the passenger is not being released at this time. The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will release his name once a positive identification has been made and his next of kin have been notified.

Anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoke to police, are asked to call the Aurora Police Traffic Investigations Unit or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867. By using Crime Stoppers tipster can remain anonymous and are eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
