AURORA, Colo. — Two men were killed in a rollover accident Thursday morning, the Aurora Police Department said.

The accident happened on South Havana Street between Alameda and First avenues just before 8 a.m.

A silver Lexus was traveling northbound on Havana when it suddenly veered left into the southbound lanes, Aurora Police said. It collided with a white Toyota Land Rover, which was in the center southbound lane and spun, and then the Lexus flipped.

The passenger in the Lexus died at the scene, while the driver was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. Neither man has been identified and Aurora Police don’t believe either one was wearing a seat belt.

The female driver of the Land Rover was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, said police, which added excessive speed by the Lexus is suspected.

It’s unclear why the Lexus made a sudden turn because it was in an area where no left-hand turn could be taken.

Southbound Havana was closed at First and traffic was diverted from the area as crews investigated and cleaned up the crash. It reopened just after noon.
