AURORA, Colo. β€” A 75-year-old woman has died after being struck by a vehicle as she tried to cross the street in Aurora Sunday evening, police said.

According to the Aurora Police Department (APD), officers responded to the accident at East Colfax Avenue and Clinton Street at 5:22 p.m.

They found the woman suffering from multiple injuries after being struck by an SUV, police said. She later died at the hospital.

APD said their initial investigation revealed the woman was crossing the street without using a crosswalk when she was hit by an SUV. 

The man who was driving the SUV stayed at the scene, police said, and investigators don't believe drugs, alcohol or speed were factors in the accident. The investigation is still active, police said. 

The name of the woman will be released by the Adams County Coroner's Office.

APD asks anyone who may have witnessed the crash, has dash cam footage, or has any information about the incident to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
