Hit and run accidents: Suspect arrested after neighbor calls 911

Victims of automobile accidents in Colorado typically have the opportunity to pursue financial relief if the negligence of another party caused the crash. This might become complicated if the at-fault driver failed to remain at the scene. Victims of hit and run accidents may have to rely on their insurance coverage to provide financial relief.

However, in most cases, law enforcement catches up with drivers who fled the scenes of accidents. In many cases, suspects are located with the help of the public. The surviving family members of a 59-year-old pedestrian, who died after a car in Colorado Springs struck him, may now be able to find closure and compensation after a suspect was arrested. Reportedly, authorities posted many signs describing the suspect's vehicle along Interstate 25, asking for the help from the public.

The call for help was successful, as an observant neighbor alerted police to the whereabouts of the vehicle. The suspect, who is out on a $5,000 bond, is a 22-year-old man who now faces a felony charge for causing a fatal accident. According to the sheriff's department, he was also charged with misdemeanors, including driving without proof of insurance and a valid driver's license.

When suspects in fatal hit and run accidents are identified, it becomes a bit easier for the surviving family members to recover damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist with the process of establishing negligence, which is the basis of any wrongful death lawsuit in Colorado. Once the court can determine liability, a monetary judgment can be entered to cover documented claims for financial and emotional damages.
