22-year-old woman fatally hit while walking across I-70 in Aurora

A 22-year-old woman who died after walking across Interstate 70 may have been hit by several vehicles, and Aurora police investigating the death on Thursday appealed for help from the public.

A BMW 330xi moving west on I-70 between Pena Boulevard and Chambers Road struck the woman late Wednesday, around 11:20 p.m., Aurora police said. “Investigators believe it is possible the pedestrian was hit by several vehicles” and that the drivers of those vehicles “do not know they were involved,” police spokeswoman Sydney Edwards said.

Paramedics took the woman from I-70 to a hospital, where she died of her injuries.

The driver of the BMW stayed at the scene “and is cooperating,” Edwards said.

Anyone who might have been involved or who witnessed what happened is asked to contact the Aurora Police Department. This was the 24th traffic-related fatality of 2023 in Aurora.
