Hit-and-run accidents: Driver leaves accident scene twice

Leaving the scene of an accident can have severe consequences for a driver and make life difficult for the victims. Fortunately, Colorado law enforcement typically catches up soon with drivers who were involved in hit-and-run accidents. A driver in Aurora was recently taken into custody within 15 minutes after leaving crash scenes twice, causing the death of a woman in the second incident.

Hit and run accidents: Suspect arrested after neighbor calls 911

Victims of automobile accidents in Colorado typically have the opportunity to pursue financial relief if the negligence of another party caused the crash. This might become complicated if the at-fault driver failed to remain at the scene. Victims of hit and run accidents may have to rely on their insurance coverage to provide financial relief.

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver flees after striking motorcyclist

Colorado laws require any driver who is involved in an accident to remain at the scene to render aid where necessary. However, some drivers decide to leave accident scenes for various reasons. Hit-and-run accidents can make it challenging for injured victims to recover damages, but not impossible. Police in Denver asked witnesses to a recent accident to come forward with information that might help to identify the at-fault driver.

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver who struck 3 pedestrians located

According to Colorado law, any vehicle operator who is involved in a crash must remain at the accident scene and render aid. Furthermore, the law requires every driver to have insurance to cover bodily injury to others in the case of an accident. While these laws are meant to protect victims of hit-and-run accidents, it does not stop them from happening.

Hit-and-run accidents: Fatal crash kills 18-year-old student

The Colorado Springs Police Department reports that there were 28 fatalities in traffic-related incidents by this time of the year in 2016. On a recent Sunday, a UCCS student became the 31st person to die in an accident this year. This was one of those tragic hit-and-run accidents that resulted in an innocent person's death.

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver facing vehicular homicide charge

On Aug. 26, a 26-year-old pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in Colorado. Sadly, this was just one of many hit-and-run accidents that occur in Denver every year. Losing a loved one in an automobile accident is understandably devastating, and if the driver did not even have the decency to stop, it exacerbates the trauma that the surviving family members must face.

Hit and run accidents: Woman arrested after striking 11-year-old

A Medina Alert was issued on a recent Tuesday afternoon following an incident in which an 11-year-old boy suffered serious injuries. Medina Alert is a statewide program in Colorado that calls for public help after hit and run accidents to locate the responsible drivers. The response of an observant driver helped law enforcement to identify the owner of the suspected vehicle and to a woman's arrest later that same evening.

Drug charges may no longer be based on the smell of marijuana

Drivers in Colorado who were arrested after their cars were searched without search warrants but based on indications by K-9 officers that there were illegal items in the vehicles may be interested in a recent ruling of the Colorado Court of Appeals. Up to now, law enforcement was allowed to base vehicle searches purely on the presence of a smell of marijuana. However, the court ruled that a vehicle may not be searched, and drug charges filed solely on the basis of a smell of pot. The court's decision follows the end of marijuana prohibition.

Damages may be recoverable after hit and run accidents

Whenever a driver is involved in an accident in Colorado or another state, he or she must stop and render aid. Leaving an accident scene can have serious consequences -- especially if it involved injuries. Victims of hit and run accidents are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to recovery of damages.
