(January 1) One man is dead following a crash that closed I-225 near East 6th Avenue for several hours.

On December 31, 2022, at 9:54 p.m. Aurora 911 began receiving calls about an accident on northbound I-225 near East 6th Avenue involving one car and a pedestrian.

Officers arrived on scene and found a pedestrian lying in the center median suffering life-threatening injuries. The pedestrian was transported to the hospital but sadly, they succumbed to their injuries.

The identity of the deceased pedestrian 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 Highway for several hours so they could collect evidence, photograph the scene, and take necessary measurements. The initial investigation revealed a GMC SUV was traveling Northbound on I-225 as the pedestrian tried to cross the roadway. The driver of the SUV attempted to avoid the pedestrian but was unsuccessful. The driver remained on scene and has been cooperative with the investigation.

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 50th traffic related fatality of 2022.
