Aurora, CO.- 19 June, 2016, 9:41p.m.- Taco Mex Resturant parking lot (10909 E. Colfax Ave.)
APD patrol and traffic officers responded to E. Colfax Ave.  and Joliet Street on a report of an automobile versus pedestrian crash.  Upon arrival investigation revealed the following:  A witness who was sitting in the drive-thru lane of the Taco Mex restaurant, 10909 E. Colfax Ave., advised observing a 50 yo Hispanic male walking westbound along E. Colfax Ave. north side sidewalk at Joliet Street who appeared to be very intoxicated.  The male reached the northeast corner of E. Colfax Ave. and Joliet and fell down on the grass.  The landscaping sprinklers were on so the male got up and stumbled into the Taco Mex parking lot and collapsed again in the southwest corner of the parking lot onto his back.  The subject laid there for a minute or so until a maroon in color 2009 Cadillac Escalade, driven by a 29 yo female, was northbound on Joliet Street and made a right turn into the Taco Mex parking lot, driving over the male.  

The male pedestrian, who we have not been able to positively identify, was transported to University ER for life threatening injuries and was pronounced dead a short time later.  The female driver of the Escalade was very cooperative with our investigation and showed no indications of alcohol or drug impairment but consented to a blood draw.    

The APD Traffic Section is investigating this crash under report # 2016-24476.  We are not releasing names at this time pending identity of the male pedestrian and notifications of next of kin.  No charges have been issued at this time as it appears the proximate cause of the crash was the actions of the pedestrian.
