Hit and run accidents: Woman arrested after striking 11-year-old

A Medina Alert was issued on a recent Tuesday afternoon following an incident in which an 11-year-old boy suffered serious injuries. Medina Alert is a statewide program in Colorado that calls for public help after hit and run accidents to locate the responsible drivers. The response of an observant driver helped law enforcement to identify the owner of the suspected vehicle and to a woman's arrest later that same evening.

Drug charges may no longer be based on the smell of marijuana

Drivers in Colorado who were arrested after their cars were searched without search warrants but based on indications by K-9 officers that there were illegal items in the vehicles may be interested in a recent ruling of the Colorado Court of Appeals. Up to now, law enforcement was allowed to base vehicle searches purely on the presence of a smell of marijuana. However, the court ruled that a vehicle may not be searched, and drug charges filed solely on the basis of a smell of pot. The court's decision follows the end of marijuana prohibition.

Damages may be recoverable after hit and run accidents

Whenever a driver is involved in an accident in Colorado or another state, he or she must stop and render aid. Leaving an accident scene can have serious consequences -- especially if it involved injuries. Victims of hit and run accidents are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to recovery of damages.

Hit and run accidents often leave victims without compensation

A pedestrian in Colorado was recently struck by the car of a driver who failed to stop. Victims of hit and run accidents often end up with severe injuries and unable to seek recovery. Authorities say this incident happened on a recent Monday morning. Officers were looking for a particular SUV in connection with the crash.

Hit and run accidents: Plea deal accepted in Colorado

When a family loses a loved one due to the negligence of another, knowing that justice will be served often provides some degree of comfort to those grieving. However, the criminal justice system isn't the only entity that can mete out justice. Many who have lost loved ones in hit and run accidents in Colorado, for example, also pursue a wrongful death claim in a civil court. Such may be the next step for one family.

Hit and run accidents: Charges filed following Colorado fatality

Vehicle accidents can happen for a variety of reasons. Regardless of the cause, a person involved in a car crash is required to remain at the scene. Hit and run accidents often result in criminal charges once police identify the driver involved. For example, a woman in Colorado now faces multiple charges after police say she failed to remain at the scene of a fatal crash.

Families often demand justice following hit and run accidents

The unexpected loss of a family member is a tragedy for which no family is prepared. Losses resulting from hit and run accidents can seem especially shocking as family members think of their loved one being abandoned by the person causing their injury. Often, such incidents prompt a desire for justice, but the family members of a hit and run victim in Colorado are questioning whether a recent plea deal actually serves that purpose.

Hit and run accidents: Woman receives 24 years re fatal accident

People are expected to act in a certain way following an event potentially resulting in injury. In the event of a car accident, for example, a driver who is involved in the crash is both ethically and legally required to remain at the scene. Unfortunately, hit and run accidents happen in Colorado and across the country. In fact, one woman was recently sentenced to prison for her involvement in a fatal accident.

Driver who caused series of hit and run accidents found

Colorado police were on the hunt for a driver after he apparently caused a car wreck and then fled the scene. The first wreck caused a series of other collisions that resulted in one death and at least one injured person. While hit and run accidents typically result in criminal charges once authorities locate the involved driver, victims can still pursue compensation for their injuries and other damages.
