(December 30) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash that occurred on East Iliff Avenue.

On Thursday December 30, 2021, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Aurora Police responded a rollover crash near the intersection of East Iliff Avenue and South Elkhart Street.

When first responders arrived, they observed an Acura sedan resting on its roof, still occupied by the driver, a 28-year-old man. Tragically, this man was pronounced dead on the scene. The passenger of the Acura, also an adult male, was able to crawl out of the vehicle but was injured and transported to the hospital with minor injuries. The adult female driver, and only occupant of a Chevrolet SUV, was treated for her injuries on scene.

The Aurora Police Traffic Section responded to the scene and is handling the investigation of this crash. Initial information from the scene is that the Acura sedan was traveling eastbound on East Iliff Avenue, approaching South Elkhart Street. The driver made an unsafe lane change, causing the rear driver’s side of the Acura to strike the front passenger side of the Chevrolet SUV. This impact caused the Acura to lose control, spin into the center median, where it then rolled onto its roof. It is believed that the driver of the Acura was not wearing a seatbelt, which we believe contributed to his death.

Aurora Police Traffic Investigators do not believe that drugs or alcohol were contributing factors. Part of their ongoing investigation will determine the speed of the Acura at the time of the crash.

The identification of the driver will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office once he has been positively identified and next-of-kin have been notified.

We ask anyone who may have witnessed this crash or has dash-camera footage of the crash and has not yet spoken to police to contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section or the 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.
