Car Accident Kills Aurora Man

Comments Off

A 39-year-old man from Aurora was killed in a car accident last week. The accident happened on Interstate 25. The victim was apparently trying to pass a semi-truck and he ended up hitting the truck.

The driver

apparently accelerated and moved to the right lane, cutting off another vehicle in the process but making no contact with it. He continued to accelerate while in the right lane and attempted to move into the left lane again, in front of the Freightliner.

Instead, the Toyota’s left rear struck the right front of the semi, causing the car to spin counterclockwise as it went off the left side of the road and onto the center median.

The victim was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from his car. The driver of the semi-truck was not hurt in the accident. The police are still investigating the accident and believe that alcohol, drugs, and high rate of speed were not factors.
