(September 19) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash on Interstate 225 that tragically left one teenager deceased, another injured.

On September 19, 2021, at approximately 08:50 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a report of a crash on Interstate 225 near the East 6th Avenue exit. Officers located a Chevrolet Silverado that had been occupied by two young persons, a man and a woman, who are both 17-years-old. Officers attempted to perform lifesaving measures on the person whom we believe is the driver before he was transported to the hospital. This man was tragically pronounced deceased a short time later. The woman remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators believe the Silverado was traveling northbound on Interstate 225 just north of East 6th Avenue. The driver lost control of the vehicle, causing the vehicle to roll-over at least once, resulting in both occupants being ejected. Aurora Police Traffic Investigators also believe that the Silverado was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. It is unknown if drugs or alcohol were additional contributing factors. 

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

This remains an active investigation. We are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoke to police, 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 still be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.
