Hit and run crash at Jamaica and Iliff traps one, destroys car 02/03/17

02/03/17 Aurora, CO – An Aurora Fire Rescue (AFR) Medical Officer stumbled across a serious hit-and-run crash right outside of Aurora Fire Station 11 around 9PM this evening.  AFR MED-2 was leaving the station non-emergent to respond to an accident in North A-Town when he came across a serious hit-and-run accident which had just occurred on E. Iliff Ave. at S. Jamaica Street.  Finding at least one person trapped inside a rear-ended hatch-back, MED-2 called for multiple other Aurora Fire Rescue resources including trucks for extraction and 2 ambulances.  Witnesses to the crash told this reporter that a large utility truck had been westbound on Iliff Ave. when it rear-ended the little hatch-back pinning at least one occupant.  According the the witnesses the utility truck then proceeded west on Iliff Ave. fleeing the scene.  Due to the heavy damage done to the little car it can be assumed that the utility truck sustained substantial damage as well.  Firefighters and paramedics used heavy equipment to extricate the one victim.  Two ambulances transported an unknown total number of victims to a local hospital(s).  Aurora Fire Rescue has rolled on multiple calls this evening.  MED-2 told me that this night might continue to prove busy for Aurora Fire and Police.  Shane Anthony reporting AuroraNews1.com
