Helping injured victims may lead to auto-pedestrian accidents

Auto-pedestrian accidents often involve good Samaritans. The Colorado State Patrol has reported about such an accident in Boulder.

Auto-pedestrian accidents claim too many lives in Colorado

Whenever pedestrians and bicyclists share the roads with automobile operators in Colorado cities, lives will be threatened. Although all road users must comply with the rules of the road, cyclists typically have only crash helmets, and pedestrians have nothing to protect them from injuries. For this reason, most auto\-pedestrian accidents result in life-threatening injuries or death.

Responding to auto-pedestrian accidents in Colorado

There are a variety of different ways to utilize Colorado roadways. While most people think of cars, pedestrians should also feel safe using the roadways, whether walking on the shoulder, crosswalks or sidewalks. Unfortunately, auto\-pedestrian accidents often result in serious harm -- even death -- to those on foot.

Cities with safety plans have better streets and sidewalks

Sidewalks and bike lanes are regarded as safe spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, but that is not always the case. In fact, the layout of streets can affect the safety of non-vehicle roadway users even when sidewalks and crosswalks are present. 102 pedestrians and cyclists have died on Denver roads since 2012, including 26 in 2016, the most in the four-year period.

Colorado auto-pedestrian accidents: Man arrested after fatality

An accident can happen at any time in Colorado. Regardless of the events that precede it, a person involved in an accident has a legal and ethical obligation to stop and render aid. Unfortunately, auto\-pedestrian accidents often occur due to negligence on the part of a driver. Drivers who fail to remain at the scene can face additional criminal charges. One man is accused of leaving the scene of an accident after a crash that involved a pedestrian fatality.

Auto-pedestrian accidents often occur as secondary collisions

One might say the woman who was seriously injured in a recent accident in Colorado was a "temporary" pedestrian. Moments earlier, she had been traveling by motor vehicle but stopped her car and was walking across the road to assist other motorists who had just been involved in a terrible crash. Auto-pedestrian accidents like this one typically have devastating outcomes.
