(July 18) The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating a fatal motorcycle and vehicle crash that happened near South Havana Street and East Evans Avenue.

On July 18th, 2022 at 6:50 pm Aurora 911 received multiple calls of a serious crash in the roadway. Aurora Fire Rescue and Aurora Police responded and found an adult male lying in the road. The male was transported to the hospital for medical care. Sadly, the male did not survive his injuries and was pronounced deceased.

Preliminary investigation revealed a blue Subaru Impreza and a Yamaha R6 motorcycle were involved in the crash. The motorcycle was traveling northbound on South Havana Street at a high rate of speed. The Subaru was turning left onto southbound South Havana Street from a parking lot on the east side of the road and collided with the motorcycle. Both vehicles caught fire. The driver of the Subaru remained on scene and cooperated with the investigation.

Both directions of Havana Street were closed for multiple hours so the Traffic Investigators could collect evidence, photographs, and measurements. This investigation is ongoing and will determine if alcohol, or any other factors contributed to the crash.

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

If you witnessed this crash or have dash-camera footage of the crash and have not yet spoken to investigators, please contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section.

This is the 24th traffic related fatality of 2022.
