On September 24, 2019 at about 10:04 PM, Aurora Police and Fire responded to a single vehicle crash in the 22600 block of Heritage Parkway.  During the investigation they found that a 2014 Dodge truck had been driving east and ran off the road into a park bench and trees.  The crash resulted in the death of a pedestrian who may have been walking down the sidewalk, the Arapahoe County Coroners officer Identified the victim as Dale Fabricius 06/03/1959.

 

 

The victim in the accident is the brother of Lee Fabricius 03/11/1969, who was driving the truck.   At this time, we believe alcohol consumption to be a factor in the crash but that cannot be confirmed until toxicology reports are reviewed.  Mr. Lee Fabricius is in custody at a local hospital.
