Snowy pile-up reminds Denver to drive carefully this winter

Twenty vehicles were involved in a snowy pile-up on Interstate 70 near Denver on November 24, reminding us that, once again: winter is upon us. Authorities stated that heavy snow and winds were contributing factors in the crash, which seems to have begun when a large truck jackknifed on the highway. 

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver flees scene of fatal Denver crash

Colorado police are looking for the driver of a car that caused the tragic death of a visitor to Denver from another state. A report by the Denver Police Department indicates that 14 fatalities in hit-and-run accidents were recorded this year, compared to seven last year and four in 2016. Reportedly, law enforcement has caught up with all but five of the 2018 hit-and-run perpetrators.

Violent crimes include involuntary manslaughter after DUI crash

Anyone in Colorado who faces criminal charges will know that a conviction could mean time in prison. If it involves violent crimes, the consequences can be life changing, including a felony record that will follow a convict forever. Many people might not realize that causing a fatal crash while under the influence of alcohol constitutes a violent crime, even if there was no intention to kill anybody.

5 most common slip and fall injuries

Winter is nearly here and some areas of Denver have already seen ice and snow. The days are shorter, the nights are longer, and sidewalks are slipperier. Puddles during the day turn into ice rinks at night. Hopefully, you will manage to stay upright all winter, but if you do slip and fall, be on the look-out for these five common injuries:

Winter roads and distracted driving are a hazardous combination

Distracted driving can be deadly any time of the year, but it can be especially dangerous when paired with winter weather and congested commutes. According to a recent Denver Post article, winter weather contributed to an abundance of crashes in the Denver metro area Nov. 12. Although the article did not specifically mention distracted driving, there is a good chance it was another contributing factor in some of the crashes.

Hit-and-run accidents: Suspected DUI driver kills pedestrian

When pedestrians are struck and killed by automobiles, their surviving family members would understandably be upset to learn that the driver believed responsible for the fatal crash failed to stop and assist the victim. The trauma could be exacerbated if the driver is suspected of having been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. Sadly, hit-and-run accidents are not unusual occurrences in Colorado.

Text message prompts residence search that leads to drug charges

There are many aspects of arrests and search and seizure proceedings that are subject to challenge, and in many cases any irregularities documented could be enough to get a criminal case dismissed. A Colorado woman was recently arrested on drug charges at her Grand Junction home. Her legal counsel will likely scrutinize every step taken by the deputies who arrested her and later searched her house.
