The Aurora Police Department is asking the public for help in finding two drivers involved in a double hit-and-run collision that killed a cyclist in Aurora Wednesday morning, September 4.
According to a press release from the Aurora Police Department, authorities received several calls at about 2:59 a.m., regarding what appeared to be a deceased male in the roadway of 1800 South Buckley Road.
