On January 29th, 2022 at approximately 6:45p.m. Aurora Police responded to a report of an injury crash in the intersection of East Iliff Avenue and South Tower Road.  

Upon arrival they found a heavily damaged Chevy Equinox and Chrysler 300.   A 61-year-old man who was driving the Chevy was deceased at the scene. A 25-year-old man who was driving the Chrysler and his 19-year-old passenger survived the collision and were transported to a local hospital in serious condition.

Investigators believe that prior to the crash the Chevy was traveling southbound on Tower Road and the Chrysler was traveling northbound.  The Chevy made a left hand turn to go eastbound on Iliff Avenue when it was struck by the Chrysler. Investigators are looking into whether or not excessive speed was a contributing factor in this collision. 

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 about his death.  

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 Investigations Unit. 

Parts of the intersection were closed for several hours while investigators completed their on-scene investigation.
