Vehicular homicide and drug charges pending in fatal DUI crash

With summer now in full effect, the roads and highways around the country are more crowded as people take time off for vacation and teens are out of school. As the number of drivers rises, there is typically an uptick in car wrecks and fatalities. A recent DUI accident in Colorado resulted in the death of two people, and pending vehicular homicide, traffic citations and drug charges for a juvenile driver.

According to authorities, the juvenile was driving a sedan on a local Boulder street at just before midnight. He rear-ended a second sedan that was stopped at a red light, and he proceeded to hit a truck at the same intersection. Police state that there was minimal braking prior to the crash.

The occupants in the first car that he hit were both critically injured in the wreck and were taken to Boulder County Community Health. Tragically, they were both removed from life support and passed away a few days after the crash. The occupants of the truck were not injured, and the driver who precipitated the accident was treated for minor wounds and released from the hospital.

Though the driver in this case faces many criminal and drug charges in juvenile and county court, the family of the victims can choose to pursue civil litigation against him. Those facing similar circumstances in Colorado could benefit from contacting an attorney who focuses on personal injury litigation. Many expenses can result from such a tragic event that are unexpected, such as medical bills, funeral costs, loss of wages and other financial obligations.  Attorneys in this field may be in the best position to discuss the various legal options available
