(March 26, 2023) - The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigations Unit is investigating a fatal crash that occurred late Saturday night, March 25, on Interstate 225.

Officers responded to a crash in the southbound lanes of Interstate 225 near the E. Mississippi Ave exit about 10:50 p.m. The subsequent investigation revealed a Lexus sedan was traveling southbound on I-225 at a high rate of speed. The man driving the Lexus attempted to pass another vehicle on the right shoulder when it lost control. The man drove up the right grass embankment before veering back onto the roadway, then being wedged under the trailer of a semi.

The 58-year-old man driving the Lexus was pronounced deceased on scene and will be identified by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office. The driver of the semi was not injured.

Southbound Interstate 225 was closed for more than six hours for the investigation. The roadway was reopened shortly after 5:00 a.m. Sunday.

This is the 10th traffic-related fatality this year in Aurora.
