Pedestrian killed when SUV slides into crosswalk in Aurora


DENVER (AP) -- Authorities say a pedestrian was killed when an SUV slid into a crosswalk in Aurora.

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/8c2hKG ) the driver, who has not been identified, lost control of the vehicle and hit the pedestrian just after midnight Monday. The SUV then went up onto the sidewalk and rolled over in a parking lot.

The victim's name and age have not been released. None of the other pedestrians in the crosswalk were hit.

Police Sgt. William Revelle says investigators believe speed and alcohol played a role in the crash.
