Sheriff: Man Struck and Killed by Car Was in Another Crash Same Evening

The 54-year-old man's vehicle needed a tow, but he refused a ride out of the area after the first crash, officials said.

A 54-year-old man who was fatally struck by a pickup truck on Monday was involved in another car crash earlier that day, police said.

Dean Craig of Aurora was walking in the area after his car was towed from in an earlier traffic crash, reports said.

The first crash occurred at about 6 p.m. on Monday. In that crash Craig advised he was driving north on Dugan Road about .2 miles south of Granart Road, when he made a left turn into a driveway of a residence to turn around, according to the Sheriff's Office. 

As Craig attempted to make that turn, he turned in front of a vehicle that was traveling south on Dugan Road. Both vehicles had to be towed because of the damage, but there were no injuries.

The sheriff’s deputy who handled the initial crash offered Craig a ride but he refused. He said he had called a friend who would pick him up. No citations were issued in that crash

The second crash occurred about a half hour after the investigation into the first crash was completed, the Sheriff's Office said.

No citations have been issued in the second crash at this time, according to the Sheriff's Office statement.
