AURORA, Colo. — A 20-year-old woman is dead after a crash in Aurora on Saturday morning.
According to the Aurora Police Department (APD), officers responded to a crash at the intersection of South Tower Road and East Girard Avenue around 12:45 a.m. on Saturday.
When officers arrived they found a gray Dodge Charger crashed near the northwest corner. Two victims were inside the vehicle.
