Criminal charges filed after crash that killed motorcyclist

An accident in Colorado on a recent Friday evening left one person dead and another one arrested. Criminal charges were filed against a 55-year-old pickup truck driver who is accused of causing the crash. Police in Colorado Springs are urging eyewitnesses to call and provide any information that might help the investigation.

According to an accident report, two motorcyclists were heading north on a Colorado Springs road at approximately 11 p.m. when they were struck by a pickup truck. Law enforcement alleges that the pickup truck was heading south when he turned left without yielding. Reportedly, he drove directly into the two bikers, colliding with both of them.

Authorities say one motorcyclist escaped injuries, but the other one suffered critical injuries. The 29-year-old biker died at the crash scene. The pickup truck driver was also uninjured, but police arrested him on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. Vehicular homicide charges were added later. The investigation into the accident is ongoing.

In the meantime, it might be a good idea for the driver who is facing criminal charges to retain the services of an experienced Colorado criminal defense attorney. Having legal counsel from the onset can ensure his rights are protected, and a lawyer can prevent the accused driver from incriminating himself. A lawyer can scrutinize the charges and the evidence and launch an independent investigation into the circumstances of the accident to obtain information on which to base a strong defense. If the prosecution offers a plea agreement, the attorney can work to negotiate terms that will be most favorable for the client.
