Information previously released on October 28, 2018

On October 28th, 2018, at 3:08 AM, Aurora Officers were dispatched to a call of a welfare check of a person down on the sidewalk on East Iliff Avenue east of South Pagosa Way.  When Officers arrived, they found a deceased 26 year old female on the south sidewalk.

Their investigation revealed that an eastbound vehicle had left the roadway for an unknown reason and drove up onto the south sidewalk.  The vehicle continued east on the south sidewalk where it struck the female, a street sign and then managed to get back onto eastbound East Iliff Avenue.  The driver did not remain on scene and so far, there are no witnesses to the victim being struck.

The victim's name is not being released at this time.  Eastbound East Iliff Avenue was closed at South Pagosa Way during the investigation.
