(December 30) A man died Friday morning following a multi-vehicle crash near Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora.

The crash occurred at 10:46 a.m. when an Acura TL sedan rear-ended a Chevy Tahoe while driving south on South Parker Road approaching East Quincy Avenue. After the initial crash, the Acura veered into northbound traffic where it crashed with a Subaru Outback and a Ford F250 before coming to rest.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the driver of the Acura unresponsive in his vehicle. Officers extricated the man and performed CPR until Aurora firefighters arrived.

The man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. Despite the life-saving efforts of first responders, the man passed away. The cause and manner of death, in addition to the driver’s identity, will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office.

There were no other occupants in the Acura. No other injuries were reported. The crash remains under investigation by the Aurora Police Department Traffic Section.

All northbound lanes of South Parker Road and all but one lane of southbound traffic were closed because of the crash. The roadways were reopened at 1:12 p.m.

This is the 49th traffic-related fatality of 2022.
