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.

Aurora police say one such incident occurred in the early morning hours of a recent Sunday. Their report indicates that a 26-year-old woman was walking on a sidewalk in Aurora when she was struck by a car. Reportedly, the 37-year-old driver of the vehicle hit a road sign before he smashed into the pedestrian.

The driver did not remain at the crash scene but drove away. However, law enforcement caught up with the driver, who is suspected of being impaired at the time. The pedestrian did not survive the accident, and the driver is now facing charges for vehicular homicide, DUI and leaving the accident scene.

Along with the trauma of having lost loved ones in hit-and-run accidents, surviving families have to deal with end-of-life expenses and other unanticipated financial consequences. In such circumstances, the support and guidance of an experienced Colorado wrongful death attorney could be an invaluable asset. A lawyer can assist in documenting negligence and damages incurred. A monetary judgment typically covers financial losses such as funeral and burial expenses, lost income and other financial losses recognized by applicable law.
