AURORA, Colo. — A woman has died and a man was seriously injured following a rollover crash Monday morning in Aurora, the Aurora Police Department (APD) said. 

At about 4:20 a.m., APD and Aurora Fire Rescue were called to the westbound lanes of I-70 at the off ramp for southbound I-225 to investigate a motor vehicle crash.
