AURORA — A man remains on life support after being struck by a car in Aurora early Saturday morning.

According to police, a Jeep was heading westbound on 6th Avenue when it struck an adult male at approximately 4:18 a.m.

The man apparently crossed the road and walked in front of the vehicle near the 11200 block of E 6th Avenue, according to officers.

The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital with severe injuries.

“There is a high potential that he will not survive,” said Lt. Jeff Turner with Aurora Police.

Two witnesses who stopped at the scene told police the pedestrian walked in front of the car. The area was dark, and there were no crosswalks nearby, police said.

The driver of the jeep was not injured.

Investigators said the driver is not suspected of speeding or intoxication. However, police believe the pedestrian may have been intoxicated.
