2 killed in Aurora crash on Thursday night

Police believe the man and woman were ejected from the SUV while it was rolling over.

AURORA, Colo. — A man and woman were killed in a single-car crash Thursday night, Aurora Police Department (APD) said.

APD and officers and Aurora Fire Rescue (AFR) responded to the intersection of Gun Club Road and South Picadilly Street at 10:50 p.m. to investigate reports of a crash.

Officers discovered the victims were ejected from an SUV, and they were both pronounced dead at the scene, according to APD.

APD said the initial investigation shows the SUV was going west on Gun Club Road at a high rate of speed when it lost control, rolled over and eventually came to a rest after hitting a power line pole.

The victims were ejected while the car was rolling over, and the pole was damaged in the crash, according to APD.

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers.
