Loving dad of 3 and his two dogs all killed in hit-and-run that happened in Aurora

Last Friday on August 5th around 2:30 in the morning, a loving family was torn apart by a deadly hit-and-run crash that happened at the city of Aurora. Jason Lyman, 41, was taking a walk with his 2 dogs Buster and Dakin, but unfortunately nobody made it home. He was the father of three children and his dogs were also hit by a car and died. His wife, Karena Lyman, is now trying to process this awful tragedy without her best friend and husband of 21 years.

This tragedy is quickly gaining a large support and attention from the community in order to find the hit-and-run driver. The reward for any information to help the Aurora Police find the criminal is now increasing day by day. In coordination with Metro Denver Crime Stoppers and the Aurora Reward Fund, the reward for any type of information is now at $10,000.

The crash occurred near the intersection of South Reservoir Road and East Mansfield Avenue. The hit-and-run driver swerved onto the sidewalk, crashed into a sign and electrical box, and crashed in a median – then took off on foot. At the memorial event for Jason Lyman and his two dogs, more than 150 people came out to mourn. Lyman’s best friend, Travis Owens, said he was an incredible father and husband.

 “This is so horrific and tragic, not only for the family but for the community. You can tell by the memorial behind me and how many people showed up for the vigil last night,” said Agent Matthew Longshore with APD. “Please check your cameras,” he advised. “It may be a small detail you do not think matters, but it could mean the difference in our case.” The APD is asking everyone around that area to check their front door or even security cameras from 2 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. as they try to construct a timeline for the suspect.

The Aurora Police Department said that they just do not have a lot of information to go off as far as who the suspect is. During an investigation, Aurora Police found out that a driver in a Toyota Sequoia was traveling southbound on South Reservoir Road, south of East Mansfield Avenue when it left the road and hit Lyman and his 2 dogs on the sidewalk. Hence, the community in that area is being asked to go through any of their exterior camera footage for information that may help find the case. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to immediately reach out to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers by calling (720)913-7867 or submitting an online tip. The APD said tipsters can remain anonymous and still be eligible for the reward. The family’s friend has also set up GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/f/bereavement-fund-for-lyman-family?utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link_all&utm_source=customer  to help with expenses.
