Fatal Crash on S Peoria St and E Mexico Ave 
On October 28th, 2017, at about 10:09 AM, Aurora Patrol Officers responded to a call of a crash at S. Peoria St. and E. Mexico Ave. When Officers arrived, they found that a 2008 Silver Nissan Maxima was south bound on S. Peoria St. at a high rate of speed. The vehicle went over a small dip in the road at E. Mexico Ave. and lost control. It struck the right curb and then drifted across the double yellow line and struck a 2012 Jeep Wrangler that was north bound in the left lane.

The driver and passenger of the Nissan were transported to a local hospital where the passenger later died of his injuries. The driver has non life threatening injuries. The driver of the Jeep was also transported with non life threatening injuries.

Drugs or alcohol are not factors in this accident. It appears that all drivers were wearing seatbelts. Traffic investigators are handling this accident. It will take some time to determine what charges may be filed against the driver.

Identities of those involved are not being released at this time. S. Peoria St. remains closed between E. Mexico Ave. and E. Jewell Ave. while this crash is being investigated.
