(October 31) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash on South Chambers Road that tragically left one teenage boy deceased.

On October 31, 2021, at approximately 6:15 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a crash involving a pedestrian on South Chambers Road near East Hampden Circle. Officers located a 15-year-old boy who had been struck by a Subaru Forester. The teenage boy was transported to the hospital where he later died. The driver of the vehicle, an adult female, remained on scene.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators determined the Subaru was traveling northbound on South Chambers Road just south of East Hampden Circle. Initial investigations indicate that the teenage boy stepped into the pathway of the vehicle and was struck. Aurora Police Traffic Investigators do not believe that the Subaru was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash. Drugs or alcohol also do not appear to be additional contributing factors.

The identity of the teenage boy will be released the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office 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 incident, and have not yet spoke to police, to contact the Aurora Police Traffic Investigations Unit or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.7867.
