(November 25) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a crash after driver dies days later.

On November 10, 2021, at approximately 10:20 p.m., the Aurora Police Department responded to a report of a three-vehicle crash at the intersection of South Parker Road and East Yale Avenue. Officers found an adult male driving a Toyota Highlander with serious injuries and was transported to the hospital. This male has been hospitalized since the crash but succumbed to his injuries on November 23, 2021. The drivers of the other vehicles did sustain minor injuries, but neither were transported to the hospital.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators determined that the Toyota Highlander was traveling northbound on South Parker Road at a high rate of speed. The driver of Highlander ran the red light at the East Yale Avenue intersection and collided with a Ford Expedition and a Toyota Corolla. It is unknown at this time if drugs or alcohol were also contributing factors.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.

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.
