On January 29th, 2022 at 6:43p.m. Aurora Police responded to a report of an injury crash on East Stephen D. Hogan Parkway between East 6th Avenue and South Picadilly Road. 

Upon arrival first responders found a heavily damaged Toyota Tundra pickup truck and a Honda Pilot in the roadway.  A 60-year-old man who was the driver of the Toyota was deceased at the scene. A 18-year-old woman who was driving a Honda Pilot was transported to a local hospital in serious condition.

Investigators believe that the Honda Pilot was traveling westbound on Hogan Parkway when it crossed the center line and traveled into the eastbound lanes striking the Toyota Tundra head-on.  The driver of the Toyota was not wearing his seatbelt at the time of the collision.  Alcohol and drugs are not suspected to have been a contributing factor in this crash. 

The name of the deceased is not being released at this time and will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office once he has been positively identified and his next of kin have been notified.  

The Aurora Police Traffic Section is conducting the investigation into this fatal crash. No arrests have been made and this case remains an open and active investigation. Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is asked to call the Traffic Investigation Unit. 
Both directions of Hogan Parkway were closed for several hours while investigators completed their on-scene investigation.
