[October 19, 2021 – Aurora, CO] — A 14-year-old boy was found trapped under a minivan on Monday evening, and authorities pronounced him dead at the scene.
Around 8:00 PM, the police were called to a hit-and-run accident in Village Green Park on S. Chambers Circle. When officers arrived, they found the boy trapped under the minivan and no driver.
Firefighters retrieved the 14-year-old from under the minivan, but he had already died.
Some time later, the minivan driver returned to the scene. It was a teenage girl. She had fled on foot after the accident but cooperated with the police when she returned.
The police believe that the boy had been holding on to the front of the—apparently stolen—minivan as the girl drove the vehicle. As of Monday evening, officers had not arrested the teenage girl.
The authorities report that they continue to investigate the crash. The coroner has not released the identity of the Aurora teenager killed in the hit and run.
