AURORA, Colo. (KDVR) – Officers with the Aurora Police Department responded to a deadly early morning crash on Sunday involving one motorcyclist and two vehicles, one of which left the scene.
At roughly 1:44 a.m. on Sunday, APD said officers were called to a crash at the intersection of East Colfax Avenue and North Moline Street that involved a Ford SUV, a white SUV and a motorcycle.
Once officers arrived, they discovered the driver of the motorcycle in the middle of eastbound East Colfax Avenue with life-threatening issues from which he died shortly thereafter.
An investigation led by the Aurora Police Traffic Section revealed that leading up to the crash, the motorcyclist was traveling west on East Colfax Avenue.
As the motorcyclist approached the intersection, a white SUV turned left from Colfax onto Moline Street, allegedly cutting off the motorcyclist in the process.
According to investigators, the motorcyclist maneuvered to avoid colliding with the white SUV, veering into oncoming traffic in the eastbound lanes of East Colfax Avenue where he was struck by the Ford SUV.
The white SUV left the scene and has not been identified.
The identity of the deceased has not been released at this point due to the Adams County Coroner’s Office’s ongoing investigation, but we will bring you that information once the next-of-kin has been contacted.
Now, the Aurora Police Traffic Section is asking for the public’s help.
