Auto-pedestrian accidents: Teen killed by suspected DUI driver

The police in Loveland, Colorado, say they are investigating the death of a local teenager who was struck by a truck. This was one of those auto-pedestrian accidents in which the vehicle driver is suspected of drunk driving. The Loveland Police Department Technical Crash Investigation Team is heading the investigation.

According to police, a crash report came in at approximately 9:30 p.m. on a recent Friday. Upon arrival at the scene, the police and rescue workers found a 13-year-old boy who had been struck by a pickup truck. The teenager was severely injured, and he was rushed to a hospital. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries later.

No information about the circumstances of the accident was reported. However, police mentioned that the 47-year-old truck driver is suspected of being impaired by alcohol at the time of the incident. He was arrested, and he is now facing several charges, including suspicion of vehicular homicide and driving under the influence of alcohol along with careless driving resulting in death.

Whenever lives are lost in auto-pedestrian accidents, the surviving family members of the deceased pedestrians can file wrongful death claims in a Colorado civil court. However, such lawsuits are based on the preponderance of evidence of negligence on the part of the driver, and establishing such negligence might be challenging. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist with this by launching an independent investigation into the accident if necessary. The lawyer can also help with the documentation of claims and the presentation in court in pursuit of a monetary judgment to cover economic and noneconomic damages.
