Sunday afternoon head-on crash in Aurora kills 1, injures 2


AURORA | A head-on collision Sunday afternoon in southeast Aurora left one woman dead and two other people with minor injuries, police said.

Rescuers were dispatched at approximately 2 p.m. to investigate a two-car crash at East Quincy Avenue and South Harvest Street. Investigators said a woman driving a Nissan Titan crossed the center-line into oncoming traffic and hit an eastbound black Ford 150 truck. Police said two adults inside the truck sustained minor injuries and were able to get out of the truck.

The woman driving the Nissan was unconscious when police arrived and was taken to a nearby hospital. Police said the woman died from injuries sustained during the crash.

The Arapahoe County Coroner has identified the woman who died in the collision as Arizona resident Cheri Fuber, 46.

“At this time, it does not appear that alcohol or speed will be contributing factors in this accident,” police said in a posted statement.

Anyone who witnessed the crash or has information is asked to call Aurora Police Detective Doug Daufeldt at 303-739-6303.
