AURORA, Colo. — The man killed in a crash with an Aurora Police officer on Saturday has been identified as Elias Hans Anderson, 44, of Aurora.
The crash happened about 8:20 p.m. Saturday at the intersection of East Bates Avenue and South Chambers Road. The officer was on his way to a call when another driver pulled out in front of him, according to the Aurora Police Department.
Security video from someone who lives near that intersection shows a police vehicle, without lights or sirens, pass by at what appears to be a high rate of speed. You can then hear the sound of a crash off-camera.
APD said the officer was on his way to a call when another driver pulled out in front of him and they collided, causing the officer's vehicle to roll over. The officer was responding to a reported break-in at a home, police said.
The other driver – identified as Anderson by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office – died at the hospital.
The officer's injuries were serious, but he was expected to recover, Aurora Police said.
The Colorado State Patrol is investigating the crash.
