On March 7th, 2017, at about 6:57 PM, Aurora Police Traffic Officers responded to an Auto Pedestrian crash at East 28th Avenue and North Tower Road.  When they arrived, they found that a 52 year old male was walking west across North Tower Road on the north side of the intersection.  The intersection is not controlled by traffic signals.  A 1993 Toyota Corolla driven by a 70 year old male was northbound in the left through lane of traffic.  The driver of the Toyota saw the pedestrian and tried to brake but was unsuccessful.  The pedestrian was struck by the Toyota.

The pedestrian was transported to an area hospital where he later died.  Detectives are currently trying to positively identify him.  Once identified, his identity will not be released until next of kin are notified.

The driver and sole occupant of the Toyota remained on scene.  He was not injured.  His identity is not being released at this time.

Traffic investigators continue to work the scene.  At this time, speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in this crash.  It will take some time to determine fault.  Northbound Tower Road remains closed during this investigation.
