Hit And Run Accidents / Oct 22,2019

Suspected hit-and-run driver arrested after pedestrian’s death

Authorities in Colorado are concerned about the number of fatal pedestrian accidents that have occurred in Aurora so far this year. Reportedly, at least eight pedestrians have lost their lives in traffic-related accidents in Aurora since January 2019. The latest fatality involved a hit-and-run driver who allegedly struck a 51-year-old woman on a recent Saturday morning.

Reportedly, the woman was a driver of a car that was involved in a collision with another vehicle in an intersection. While walking over to speak to the other driver, she was struck by a third car. That driver failed to remain at the scene. It is not clear whether the woman died at the crash scene or a hospital.

Police launched a search for the hit-and-run driver. The registration details of the car in which the driver fled the scene led law enforcement to an apartment complex nearby. Within hours of the accident, the 23-year-old man was arrested and held in a county detention center where he awaited his court appearance.

Losing a loved one in a hit-and-run accident is naturally a traumatic experience for the surviving family members of the deceased. While no amount of money can bring her back, the financial burden caused by an unexpected death can be eased. A personal injury attorney with experience in dealing with hit-and-run accident cases in Colorado can deal with ensuing legal proceedings in pursuit of damage recovery. Typical losses that can be recovered in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits include the costs of end-of-life arrangements, lost income and emotional damages, such as loss of companionship and pain and suffering of the surviving loved ones.
