Man Killed In Single-Car Crash In Aurora

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A man has died after a single-vehicle crash in Aurora Tuesday afternoon.

Lt. Jeff Turner with Aurora police said the man’s car went off the Interstate 225 ramp to westbound I-70 just before 2 p.m. Witnesses said the driver drifted off the beginning of the ramp, hit a guardrail and his car flipped over the embankment and dropped approximately 20 feet.

The man wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected. He was transported to the hospital where he was declared deceased.

Turner said speed didn’t seem to be a factor in the crash and it’s not known if he was intoxicated.

The victim’s name hasn’t been released.
