Motorists drove into a Denver restaurant three times this year

Patrons at a restaurant expect good service, fine food and a nice atmosphere. Another expectation that doesn’t come up very often is safety. If you’re out at a restaurant, you don’t think you’re putting yourself in harm’s way.

However, at the Hornet in Denver, customers have done just that on several occasions. Cars have crashed into the front of the restaurant an astounding three times this year.

Creating a drive-thru

The restaurant sits on Broadway and has been in the area for 23 years. However, for some reason, this year motorists seem to forget the building exists.

Cars have driven into the restaurant for several reasons. The first time, someone wasn’t paying attention and drove off the road. Then a driver swerved to avoid another car and rammed into the building.

Finally, it happened a third time when an impaired motorist simply plowed into the side of the restaurant.

A symptom of a greater problem

The incidents are incredibly unlucky, but also highlight a major issue in Denver: metro road speeds. Many drivers do not obey speed limits and create unsafe environments for pedestrians or bicyclists.

The area around the restaurant has thick concrete garbage cans to prevent this very issue. However, all three times the cars were going fast enough to drive through them.

There are more accidents on our roads and pedestrians and bikers are paying the price. Denver’s pedestrian fatalities are on the rise, and 2018 already has more fatalities than in 2017. 59 people have lost their lives in pedestrian or bicycle accidents involving motor vehicles this year.

Accidents between cars and pedestrians rarely turn out well for anyone involved.

Seeking fair resolutions

If a motor vehicle strikes you or someone you know, it’s important to remember that you have options. A skilled personal injury attorney can be a great resource.

There are ways to fight for fair treatment, both from the insurance company and the other driver. Don’t let someone else’s bad driving habits put your life on hold.
