The crash involved one car, and police said they closed the westbound lanes near E-470 for several hours.

AURORA, Colo. — A man died after he was ejected from his vehicle in a rollover crash on Interstate 70 on Saturday morning, according to the Aurora Police Department (APD).

Police said they responded to the crash about 2:40 a.m. and located a vehicle that had gone off the right side of I-70 westbound between the E-470 tollway and the East Colfax Avenue exit.

There was only one person in the car. Police said he was ejected during the crash and pronounced dead at the scene.

APD closed the westbound lanes of I-70 for several hours to investigate the crash.

The Adams County Coroner's Office will release the identity of the driver after making a positive identification and once his next of kin are notified. 

The investigation was still ongoing by the APD Traffic Investigations Unit. APD said they do not know the cause of the crash.
