Traffic violation stop failed, fleeing driver kills 1, injures 2

A 37-year old man was scheduled for a court hearing in Colorado earlier this month. He was taken into custody in May, and he remained in jail on a $100,000 bond. His arrest followed a fatal accident that occurred after police tried to pull the driver over for a traffic violation. According to court documents, at approximately 7 p.m. on a Sunday, Denver police officers spotted a vehicle without plates and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver raced away without stopping.

A probable cause affidavit indicates that police did not chase after the speeding driver, who was on parole at the time. However, the man allegedly disregarded a red light and smashed into a car in an intersection. Reportedly, the crash caused the death of a passenger in the vehicle, and injuries to the driver and one more passenger.

Further allegations indicate that the driver tried to flee on foot and attempted two carjackings before Denver police caught up with him. Officers claim he resisted arrest, but he was taken into custody and transported to a hospital. He is now facing charges of DUI, vehicular homicide, vehicular eluding that resulted in death, driving under restraint and leaving an accident scene.

The outcome of this man's court hearing is unknown, but it is not uncommon for a traffic violation to draw the attention of police, and, in some cases, serious criminal charges may follow. Most people in Colorado who are in similar situations will likely retain the services of an experienced criminal law defense attorney to protect their legal rights. The lawyer can examine all the charges and the available evidence before devising a defense strategy that might lead to a favorable outcome.
