Auto-pedestrian accidents claim too many lives in Colorado

Whenever pedestrians and bicyclists share the roads with automobile operators in Colorado cities, lives will be threatened. Although all road users must comply with the rules of the road, cyclists typically have only crash helmets, and pedestrians have nothing to protect them from injuries. For this reason, most auto\-pedestrian accidents result in life-threatening injuries or death.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Foreign tourist and local student die

Two men lost their lives in Colorado on a recent Saturday afternoon when they were hit by a vehicle. Auto-pedestrian accidents typically cause severe injuries or fatalities to pedestrians, while often leaving the drivers of the automobiles unscathed. This was also the case in this tragic accident.

Responding to auto-pedestrian accidents in Colorado

There are a variety of different ways to utilize Colorado roadways. While most people think of cars, pedestrians should also feel safe using the roadways, whether walking on the shoulder, crosswalks or sidewalks. Unfortunately, auto\-pedestrian accidents often result in serious harm -- even death -- to those on foot.

Cities with safety plans have better streets and sidewalks

Sidewalks and bike lanes are regarded as safe spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, but that is not always the case. In fact, the layout of streets can affect the safety of non-vehicle roadway users even when sidewalks and crosswalks are present. 102 pedestrians and cyclists have died on Denver roads since 2012, including 26 in 2016, the most in the four-year period.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: Driver in fatal Colorado crash cited

While drivers need to be vigilant at all times, extra vigilance may be required in areas with pedestrians. Auto-pedestrian accidents often cause severe injury -- even death -- to pedestrians involved. Unfortunately, a little girl in Colorado has recently lost her life following an accident that police believe was caused by the driver of a truck.

Auto-pedestrian accidents: 4 children injured in crosswalk

While Colorado drivers must remain vigilant at all times, special attention is necessary while driving in certain areas during certain times of day. For example, a driver should be extra cautious when driving through a school zone during school start and dismissal times to help prevent auto\-pedestrian accidents. Unfortunately, a recent crash demonstrates the potential for harm that young pedestrians face as they walk to school.

Colorado auto-pedestrian accidents: Man arrested after fatality

An accident can happen at any time in Colorado. Regardless of the events that precede it, a person involved in an accident has a legal and ethical obligation to stop and render aid. Unfortunately, auto\-pedestrian accidents often occur due to negligence on the part of a driver. Drivers who fail to remain at the scene can face additional criminal charges. One man is accused of leaving the scene of an accident after a crash that involved a pedestrian fatality.

Auto-pedestrian accidents often occur as secondary collisions

One might say the woman who was seriously injured in a recent accident in Colorado was a "temporary" pedestrian. Moments earlier, she had been traveling by motor vehicle but stopped her car and was walking across the road to assist other motorists who had just been involved in a terrible crash. Auto-pedestrian accidents like this one typically have devastating outcomes.

Aftermaths of auto-pedestrian accidents often devastating

As in most travel areas in the United States, Colorado roadways are often heavily laden with traffic. In places where on-foot travelers navigate the same roads as motorists, the risk of auto\-pedestrian accidents is high. Even if vehicles are moving at relatively low rates of speed, the injuries caused to pedestrians when collisions occur can be very serious or even fatal.

Teen's death highlights dangers of auto-pedestrian accidents

A young teenager is dead after a devastating accident involving an elderly driver and what was likely careless driving. Colorado police do not believe that the driver's age alone caused the wreck. Instead, officers claim that the woman was above the legal blood-alcohol limit. Auto-pedestrian accidents tend to leave both victims and the community feeling raw and exposed.
