Auto-pedestrian accidents: Driver in fatal Colorado crash cited

While drivers need to be vigilant at all times, extra vigilance may be required in areas with pedestrians. Auto-pedestrian accidents often cause severe injury -- even death -- to pedestrians involved. Unfortunately, a little girl in Colorado has recently lost her life following an accident that police believe was caused by the driver of a truck.

The incident happened one night on a day in late January. According to reports, two females were crossing the street in a crosswalk. Police say that a 45-year-old driver attempted a turn through the crosswalk, striking the two pedestrians. Both were transported to the hospital.

Sadly, a 9-year-old girl passed away as a result of the injuries she suffered in the collision. The other pedestrian remains hospitalized with serious injuries. While it is unclear if the driver was injured, he now faces several citations as a result of the accident, including careless driving and a citation involving a pedestrian's right of way while in a crosswalk.

The worse nightmare of this young Colorado girl's parents have likely been realized following the news of the accident. All too often, auto\-pedestrian accidents can also cause significant financial implications in addition to emotional grief. The parents of the deceased victim will be faced with the prospect of funeral expenses while the injured victim may struggle as a result of medical expenses. If it can be proved that an accident such as this was caused by another's negligence, victims -- including surviving family members -- could seek recompense in a civil court. An attorney with experience with such cases can help these victims fully understand their rights.
