(March 31, 2023) - The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit was called out to investigate a fatal crash involving a motorcycle on East Mexico Avenue.

Officers responded to a crash involving a motorcycle and SUV at the intersection of E. Mexico Ave and S. Helena St. at about 8:15 p.m. The initial investigation revealed a Kawasaki motorcycle was traveling eastbound on E. Mexico Ave. An Infiniti FX35 was turning left from westbound E. Mexico Ave to go southbound on S. Helena St. The motorcycle and SUV collided in the intersection, tragically killing the sole rider of the motorcycle. 

Even though he wore a helmet, the man riding the motorcycle was pronounced deceased on the scene and will be identified by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office. The 18-year-old driver of the SUV was uninjured.

Investigators do not believe alcohol was involved and will now work to determine speeds before the crash.

This is the 12th traffic-related fatality this year in Aurora.
