(July 16) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is conducting an investigation after a woman is killed, several others injured in a late-morning crash.

On July 16th, 2022, at about 11:45 a.m., the Denver Police Department responded to the area of East 40th Avenue and Pena Boulevard for calls of a serious traffic crash. When officers arrived on scene, they found three vehicle that were involved in the crash. They also discovered this crash was on the boundary they share with Aurora Police Department. At 11:52 a.m., Denver Police requested assistance from Aurora Police because the crash happened in our jurisdiction.

Our initial investigation determined that a Toyota RAV4 was eastbound on East 40th Avenue and disregarded the red light at the North Airport Boulevard intersection. After running the red light, the RAV4 struck a Jeep traveling northbound on North Airport Boulevard.  A third vehicle, Subaru sedan, was facing westbound on East 40th Avenue and sustained only minor damage as a result of this crash.

An adult woman, who was a passenger in the RAV4, was pronounced deceased on scene. Two other adults were transported to the hospital, expected to survive. A third adult self-transported to the hospital with minor injuries. 

The identification of the deceased will be released by the Adam’s County Coroner’s Office once next of kin has been notified and they have been positively identified.

Please contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section if you witnessed this crash, or have dash-camera footage of the crash, and have not yet spoken to investigators. The entire intersection of East 40th Avenue at Airport Road was closed for multiple hours to ensure appropriate investigative steps could be completed.

This is the 23nd traffic related fatality of 2022.
