Posted on 07/06/2023

(July 6, 2023) - The Aurora Police Department's Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating after a man was killed in a vehicle versus motorcycle crash Thursday, leaving a woman in critical condition.

Patrol officers responded at about 1:20 p.m. Thursday, July 6, to a report of a crash on East Quincy Avenue and South Jasper Street in District 3.

A 2003 Saturn station wagon being driven by a 51 year-old Aurora woman, accompanied by her adult daughter, was turning left from Jasper onto westbound East Quincy Avenue when it was struck by a 2005 Honda motorcycle traveling eastbound on East Quincy Avenue. A 19 year-old man was driving the 2005 Honda motorcycle.

All three individuals were transported to the hospital where the motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries. The driver of the Saturn suffered life-threatening injuries while the passenger is in stable condition. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Westbound lanes on East Quincy Ave were closed for nearly two hours and opened back up at approximately 3:30 p.m.

APD Traffic Investigators will examine the scene to determine the cause of the crash and any contributing factors.

If you witnessed this crash, or have dash-camera footage, and have not yet spoken to police, please reach out to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720.913.STOP (7867).

The crash marks the 34th traffic-related death this year in Aurora.
