Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Denver man in connection with a fatal traffic crash that occurred on 06-15-19, at around 7:21 pm at the intersection of Powhaton Rd and Sampson Gulch Way, located in unincorporated Douglas County.
Deputies responded to the area after 9-1-1 calls came in reporting that a truck had hit an SUV at the intersection and one party was trapped in the vehicle. When deputies arrived on the scene, Aurora Police Department Officers had the driver of the truck in custody.
The driver of the SUV was taken to a local hospital and has passed away from injuries sustained. The Douglas County Coroner’s Office is still working on official positive identification of the victim as well as official cause of death.
DCSO Traffic Crash Team was called to scene to investigate and while it is still an open and active case, they preliminarily believe high speed contributed to the crash.
