29-Year-Old Dies in Crash on Aurora’s West Side

The Aurora Police Department is investigating a single-vehicle fatal crash that occurred around 11:05 p.m. Wednesday (May 3, 2017) on the city’s West Side in which a loaded gun was also found.

The deceased man, Anthony Moore, 29, of the 1900 block of Fescue Drive, Aurora, was found inside of a 2017 Nissan Murano SUV where Kenilworth Place dead ends, just west of Kingsway Drive. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was westbound on Kenilworth apparently driving at a high rate of speed when the Nissan hit a tree about 60 feet off the roadway.

He was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries that appeared to be from the crash.

Officers found a 9mm handgun with an extended magazine inside of the Murano vehicle.

“It is not known why Moore was in the area or why he crashed the vehicle,” said Dan Ferrelli, city of Aurora media relations manager. “There were no witnesses, however, a resident in the 2000 block of Kenilworth heard the crash and in an attempt to assist anyone inside the vehicle, broke windows on the Murano and located Moore just before first-responders arrived.”

The Aurora Police Traffic Division is investigating the crash with the assistance of APD Evidence Technicians. Anyone who may witnessed it or have information is asked to call the Traffic Investigators at 630-256-5330.
