(Nov. 11) A man has died after being struck by a driver who then fled the scene on East Hampden Avenue.

The crash occurred about 10:50 p.m. last night, November 10, near the intersection of East Hampden Avenue and South Dawson Street in District 3. The Aurora Police Department Traffic Unit responded, and officers learned the man was lying in the left lane of eastbound Hampden Avenue when he was struck by a black SUV. The driver did not stop after the crash and the man was pronounced deceased on scene.

The identity of the victim will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after positive identification and notification of next of kin.

If you have any information about this unknown black SUV, or the driver, please contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers. Tipsters can anonymously report any information to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers and doing so allows them to be eligible for a reward of up to $2,000.

This is the 42nd traffic-related fatality for 2022.
