(December 11) One man is dead following a two-car crash that closed the intersection at South Buckley Road and East Mansfield Avenue for multiple hours.

On December 10, 2022, at about 8:45 p.m. Aurora 911 began receiving calls about a two-car crash in the intersection of South Buckley Road and East Mansfield Avenue. Callers reported that one car was on fire and the driver was still inside.
When officers arrived on scene, they found a Dodge Charger that was engulfed in flames and a Honda Accord. The driver of the Charger was sadly, deceased on scene. The driver of the Accord remained on scene and was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. A female passenger in the Charger was able to escape before it caught on fire and was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. A female passenger in the Accord fled from the scene and has not yet been identified.

The initial investigation found the Honda was traveling northbound on South Buckley Road.  The Dodge was making a left turn from eastbound East Mansfield Avenue onto southbound South Buckley Road.  They collided in the intersection.  

The identity of the deceased driver will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office once next of kin have been notified.

The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigation responded to the scene and closed the intersection for several hours so they could collect evidence, photograph the scene, and take necessary measurements. The investigation is ongoing and will determine what factors contributed to the crash. If you witnessed the crash or have any information, and you have not already spoken to investigators, please contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).

This is the 47th traffic related fatality of 2022.
