AURORA, Colo. — A motorcyclist was declared dead at a local hospital after he was hit by a car Monday afternoon at a busy intersection.
The crash happened at around 5:15 p.m. near the intersection of South Parker Road and East Belleview Avenue, according to a news release from the Aurora Police Department (APD).
The victim, who was identified as a 25-year-old man from Aurora, was unresponsive and died from his injuries a short time later.
The man driving the car believed to have hit him stayed at the scene and was cooperative with investigation, the release says.
