AURORA - Aurora Police say a teenage boy may not survive his serious injuries after a crash in an area where a large number of cars were allegedly street racing just before midnight.

Police said the injured teen was driving a Honda west on Smith Road and started to make a left turn at Ensenada Street when a BMW, reported stolen earlier from Denver, that was also going west on Smith Road began to pass the Honda.

As the Honda turned, the BMW struck the driver's side of the Honda, according to police.

The driver of the BMW and possibly as many as four passengers ran from the scene and have not been located.

The Honda was not actively racing at the time of the accident, police said. It is not known if the Honda was participating in racing before the crash or if the driver intended to participate in racing later.

Police do believe the driver of the Honda was in the area to watch racing.

A man and another juvenile who were in the Honda both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Police are not releasing the names of the victims at this time.

When officers arrived, they said numerous cars were seen fleeing the area, and witnesses reported a large number of cars were street racing in the area prior to the crash.

Police are asking anyone that has information about this crash, especially who was in the BMW, to call Agent Chinn at 303-739-6342.
