Aurora, CO.- July 24, 2016, 10:45 p.m. - Aurora P.D. patrol and Traffic officers responded to the area of S. Chambers Road and Crestline Ave. on a report of a single vehicle crash.  Upon arrival the investigation revealed a black in color Ford Explorer was northbound on S. Chambers Road from S. Parker Road, and according to witnesses, traveling at a high rate of speed.  When attempting to make it around a curve the vehicle lost control, struck the curb line, and then struck several signal light poles, causing it to roll.  Both occupants, a 31 yo. male, and a 28 yo. female were ejected from the vehicle.  Both were taken to local hospitals for treatment and the female later died from her injuries while in surgery.  It is unknown at this time which occupant was driving the vehicle at the time of the crash.  The male is currently in stable condition. 

The Aurora Police Traffic Section is investigating this crash under report # 2016-29430.  We are not releasing names at this time.  We believe alcohol intoxication, speeding, and not wearing seatbelts were all contributing factors in this crash.  This is the 11th traffic related fatality this year for the City of Aurora.
