(March 14, 2023) - The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit is investigating a two-vehicle fatal crash that occurred in District 2.

Aurora Police Officers responded to a crash at 3:54 p.m. at the intersection of East Jewell Avenue and the E-470 interchange. The preliminary investigation revealed a Mazda SUV was turning left from the northbound exit ramp of E-470 onto East Jewell Ave. The Mazda turned in front of a Ford F-150 that was traveling eastbound on East Jewell Ave.

The woman driving the Mazda was pronounced deceased shortly after arriving at a local hospital. A man, who was in the passenger seat of the Mazda, was taken to a local hospital, where he remains in critical condition. The man driving the F-150 was evaluated on the scene but not transported. The Arapahoe County Coroner's Office will release the identification of the deceased. Investigators do not believe alcohol was involved and will now work to determine speeds before the crash.

Both directions of East Jewell Avenue were closed for almost two hours for the investigation.

This is the 9th traffic-related fatality this year in Aurora.
