Traffic Unit Investigating Fatal Chambers Road Crash
Posted on 05/14/2023

(May 14th) – The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a fatal crash that happened overnight on Chambers Road near Interstate 70.

Officers responded to a rollover crash on Chambers Road near East 38th Avenue at 1:28 a.m. When they arrived on scene, they discovered it was not a rollover but actually a broadside crash. Initial investigation determined a red 2012 Ford F250 was southbound on North Chambers Road and a gold 2000 Infinity I30 sedan was making a left turn from the eastbound I-70 off-ramp onto North Chambers Road. The Ford crashed into the side of the Infinity and then went off the roadway and down an embankment on the west side of the roadway.

The adult male driver of the Infinity, and sole occupant, did not survive his injuries and died at the scene.  The driver and passenger of the Ford, both adult males, were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

This investigation is ongoing, but intoxication is a possible contributing factor to the crash. Crash reconstruction will help determine fault and speed.

The deceased driver's name, as well as the official cause and manner of death, will be released by the Adams County Coroner's office.

Any witnesses, or anyone with dash cam footage who hasn't already spoken to police, is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).

This marks the 21st traffic-related fatality this year.
