Auto-pedestrian accidents: 13-year-old girl fatally struck by car

Pedestrians in Colorado cities will always be at risk of being struck by vehicles. Auto-pedestrian accidents claim a significant percentage of the lives that are lost on city streets each year. One of the most recent incidents caused the death of a Lakewood teenager.

An incident report by the Lakewood police indicates that the accident occurred at around 6:40 p.m. in the area of Belmar. According to a police spokesperson, a southbound vehicle struck a teenager as she crossed the street. Reportedly, a group of teenagers had just left a nearby movie theatre before the tragic accident.

The report explains how two of the teenagers were slightly separated from the other youths when the vehicle struck one of them. Emergency workers rushed to the scene, but despite their efforts, they could not save the life of the 13-year-old girl. Her death was declared at the scene at about 7:15 p.m. The driver whose car struck the victim remained at the crash scene.

Losing a child of such a young age is naturally extremely traumatic for the surviving family members. They might be entitled to pursue financial relief to help them to cope with the unanticipated expenses of a funeral and burial along with other costs. However, negligence on the part of the driver will have to be established. It could prove to be a challenging process, and most people who have lost loved ones in auto-pedestrian accidents in Colorado choose to utilize the services of an experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorney to navigate the legal proceedings for them.
