AURORA, Colo. — A motorcycle driver died in a crash on Friday evening in Aurora, according to police.

The crash happened about 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of South Aurora Parkway and East Arapahoe Road, according to a press release from the Aurora Police Department (APD).

The motorcycle driver, a woman, was going east on Arapahoe and entered the intersection on a green light. A Honda Pilot that was going west on Arapahoe made a left turn, failed to yield to the motorcycle's right-of-way, and hit the motorcycle, police said.

The Honda's driver stayed on scene and was treated for minor injuries, according to the release.

The motorcycle driver died at the scene. Her identity will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after next of kin are notified, police said.
