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.

Hit-and-run accidents: Elite cyclist struck by unknown driver

When an elite Colorado cyclist was on his way home after a training session on July 20, he was struck by a cargo van. As in many hit-and-run accidents, police are now asking witnesses to help them find the driver who fled the scene of the crash. The cyclist was later found by another motorist who made a 911 call that sent emergency workers who arranged for the cyclist to be airlifted to a Denver hospital.

Hit-and-run accidents typically leave many unanswered questions

When drivers in Colorado fail to stop after being involved in crashes, there are typically many questions and few answers. Fortunately, law enforcement ultimately catches up with many of the drivers who cause hit-and-run accidents. Although this will not undo the injuries or deaths suffered by victims, it simplifies the process if injured victims or surviving family members pursue claims for monetary damages.

Hit-and-run accidents: Firefighter dies on his way to work

In a recent tragedy in Colorado, a Greeley firefighter who survived the hazards of his occupation and saved the lives of others for 21 years lost his life in a traffic accident. His death was one of many that result from hit-and-run accidents each year. The fatal crash happened while the veteran firefighter was riding his motorcycle to work.

Hit-and-run accidents: Elderly pedestrian killed in crosswalk

Losing an elderly loved one to natural causes is typically less traumatic than when the negligence of another party causes his or her death. It might be the case for the surviving family members of an 82-year-old man who lost his life when a vehicle in Denver struck him earlier this month. This was one of those hit-and-run accidents in which the at-fault driver was located by law enforcement within hours.

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver in custody after turning herself in

The understandable trauma following the loss of a loved one in an auto-pedestrian accident is exacerbated if the driver of the vehicle fails to remain at the scene of the crash. Hit-and-run accidents could delay any civil lawsuits in pursuit of financial relief until law enforcement catches up with the driver or the driver surrenders. This is what happened after a recent fatal accident in Colorado.

Hit-and-run accidents: Driver flees scene of fatal Denver crash

Colorado police are looking for the driver of a car that caused the tragic death of a visitor to Denver from another state. A report by the Denver Police Department indicates that 14 fatalities in hit-and-run accidents were recorded this year, compared to seven last year and four in 2016. Reportedly, law enforcement has caught up with all but five of the 2018 hit-and-run perpetrators.

Hit-and-run accidents: Suspected DUI driver kills pedestrian

When pedestrians are struck and killed by automobiles, their surviving family members would understandably be upset to learn that the driver believed responsible for the fatal crash failed to stop and assist the victim. The trauma could be exacerbated if the driver is suspected of having been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. Sadly, hit-and-run accidents are not unusual occurrences in Colorado.

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.
