Hit-and-run accidents: Driver who struck 3 pedestrians located

According to Colorado law, any vehicle operator who is involved in a crash must remain at the accident scene and render aid. Furthermore, the law requires every driver to have insurance to cover bodily injury to others in the case of an accident. While these laws are meant to protect victims of hit-and-run accidents, it does not stop them from happening.

Self-driving cars raise important legal - and moral - issues

It seems almost inevitable that self-driving cars will soon fill our roadways. Equipped with a 360-degree awareness that far surpasses human eyesight - plus a split-second reaction time - these vehicles will be able to "see" potential hazards and, in most cases, avoid accidents before they even arise. By some estimates, self-driving vehicles will reduce road fatalities by 90 percent.

3 Colorado teens face charges of violent crimes after threats

A rural Colorado town in Otero County is abuzz after it became known that a hit list was posted on social media. Too many lives have been lost nationwide in violent crimes committed at schools, and so the suspects were arrested within a short time. The county sheriff says a high school student first provided a tip about the list that included several of the students and teachers at the school.

Animal-vehicle collisions: Will insurance cover your claim?

If you have even been driving on back roads during deer season or traveled through the woods while taking a scenic drive, you have probably have had to dodge an animal or two.  Unfortunately, sometimes a collision is unavoidable and the animal is large enough to cause significant damage or injury to your car or yourself.  Whether you have experienced a crash or a near miss you probably know how shocking and startling these type of accidents can be. With animal-vehicle collision on an upward swing in the state of Colorado, it is more important than ever to know if you are covered. After the initial shock wears off, you may find yourself wondering who will be responsible for covering the costs of injury and repair.

Colorado snowmobile safety

Whether you’re a Colorado native or one of the many welcome visitors our area draws each year, it’s never a bad idea to make sure you’re up to date on the safety regulations for any of our popular winter activities. In this post, we’ll be taking a look at the basics of snowmobile safety, as well as going over the laws that regulate their safe and legal operation. 

The rise in autonomous vehicles and your safety

Currently, there is legislation up for consideration that will make way for autonomous vehicles to operate on a regular basis, and some will not require a driver. Certain large franchises are pushing for the approval of such bills, as it will allow them to reduce shipping costs. Though this could be a win for big business, what does it do for public safety?

Motorcycle accidents: Alleged hit-and-run Denver driver at large

Colorado hit-and-run accidents are often difficult to investigate. Following car or motorcycle accidents that result in property damage, injuries or death, drivers must remain at the accident scene. Driving away can have serious repercussions for the driver, and it might prevent a seriously injured victim from receiving emergency medical treatment. It will also delay the accident investigation process and could leave the injured victims or surviving family members with many unanswered questions.

Common injuries to professional delivery truck drivers

Delivery drivers beware! As anyone who operates a delivery vehicle for a living surely knows, there are a vast number of opportunities for potential injury to occur while on the job. These can include not only incidents that occur suddenly and sometimes without warning, but also the more long-term types of injuries that can happen over time due to the rigorous and often repetitive nature of this kind of work. Understanding the conditions that factor into many of the most common injuries that afflict professional delivery drivers can go a long way toward helping prevent some of the more avoidable accidents that occur. 

Car accidents are now the number one cause of child deaths

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car accidents are the leading cause of death for children, ranging from ages 1 to 13 years old. Data compiled by the NHTSA from the year 2015 found that 35% of child passengers who were under 13 and who were not buckled up properly in seat belts, booster seats or child safety seats were killed in car accidents that year. In 59% of those cases, booster or safety seats were in use but were either incorrectly installed or not properly buckled.  These statistics don’t even extend to the inclusion of the thousands of instances in which fatality is avoided, but serious injuries to children who are improperly restrained occurred. 

5 Colorado men indicted on federal drug charges

Five Colorado men are accused of being involved in drug activities in Pueblo. Law enforcement recently reported that the five individuals are facing multiple charges, including drug charges, after the authorities claim to have busted a drug ring. Authorities say the investigation that targeted several more gangs was launched last December.

What types of car accidents are most dangerous?

Every day, more than 15,000 car accidents occur across the nation. This alarming number was based on an average of fifteen years worth of auto accident data, which is collected, compiled and released annually by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). While the wider view provided by this massive amount of data is clearly invaluable, it’s also important sometimes to place the focus on the information that might make an impact a little closer to home.

Hit-and-run accidents: Fatal crash kills 18-year-old student

On a recent Sunday, a UCCS student became the 31st person to die in an accident this year. This was one of those tragic hit-and-run accidents that resulted in an innocent person's death.
