Man falls under RTD bus on East Colfax Avenue in Aurora and dies on the spot

A man got off the RTD bus in Arora on Wednesday morning, fell and fell under the bus and the man was declared dead on the spot, police said.

According to a police news release, the incident occurred at around 6:25 a.m. on East Colfax Avenue on Havana Street.

Emergency responders found the man “suffering from obvious traumatic injuries”, where he was pronounced dead.

Police said investigators interviewed witnesses and found surveillance footage from the area that the man was “hit by an RTD bus”.

“After reviewing the video footage, the man is seen walking out the back door of the bus. The man is suffering what appears to be a medical problem, falls to the ground and falls under the bus,” the release said. “After passengers exit the bus and enter the bus, the bus pulls away from the stop, not knowing the man was down.”

Police said investigators tracked the bus and the driver to Union Station, where the driver was contacted and found evidence “linking the bus to the tragic incident”.

“We are deeply saddened by the unfortunate situation for everyone involved,” said RTD spokeswoman Tina Jaquez. “We are working with the authorities.”

Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be contributing factors in this phenomenon. The driver voluntarily submitted for a blood draw to avoid further harm, police said.

The name of the bus driver was not released. The victim will be identified by the Arapahoe County Coroner’s Office and will be released after the family is notified of the death.

The incident is being investigated by the Arora Police Traffic Division.
