(January 17) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal crash that occurred on North Potomac Street.

On Monday January 17, 2022, at about 7:25 p.m., Aurora Police responded a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of North Potomac Street and East 2nd Avenue.

The investigation has revealed that a man was driving a Nissan sedan northbound on Potomac Street just south of the East 2nd Avenue intersection. The man did not slow for the upcoming red light and rear-ended a Subaru, occupied by two adults, stopped for the red light.

The driver of the Nissan was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. It does not appear that the driver of the Nissan was wearing his seatbelt and investigators believe that speed and alcohol were also contributing factors. The two occupants of the Subaru suffered minor injuries and were both transported to the hospital.

The identification of the man 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.

This is Aurora’s second fatal crash in 2022.
