AURORA, Colo. — A motorcyclist is dead following a crash on East Colfax Avenue in Aurora early Sunday morning.

The crash happened around 1:44 a.m. at the intersection of North Moline Street and involved three vehicles: the motorcycle, a Ford SUV and a white SUV. The white SUV took off after the crash, police said.

According to police, the white SUV was traveling eastbound on Colfax and turned left onto Moline Street in front of the westbound motorcycle. To avoid a collision, the man riding the motorcyclist veered into the eastbound lanes of East Colfax Avenue and was struck by the Ford SUV.

The identification of the deceased will be released by the Adams County Coroner’s Office once they have been positively identified and their next-of-kin has been notified.
