Hit-and-run driver arrested after death of pedestrian

Pedestrians in Denver and other Colorado cities will always be vulnerable, especially when they walk after dark. While most drivers keep a lookout for pedestrians, there will always be those who are distracted or impaired. Sadly, many lives are lost in hit-and-run accidents each year. When this happens, a victim's surviving family members will likely want answers from the driver who caused their loved one's death.

An accident claimed the life of a pedestrian in Aurora on a recent Saturday evening. According to the Aurora Police Department, a driver struck a man who was crossing the street. Information is scarce because the driver failed to remain at the crash scene. Investigators are working to determine the circumstances that caused the accident.

After finding a license plate at the accident scene, investigators tracked the vehicle and its owner. The apparent hit-and-run driver was later arrested at the address found on the vehicle registration. An arrest on unknown charges was made. The pedestrian was rushed to a local hospital, where he died.

The surviving family members of a deceased hit-and-run accident victim appear to have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit in pursuit of damage recovery. With the support and guidance of an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney, they can file a suit against the at-fault driver to pursue recovery of monetary damages. Documented claims to present to the court could include, among others, the costs related to end-of-life arrangements, loss of income and potential future income along with the emotional pain and suffering of the surviving family members.
