Colorado skydiving excursion turns into fatal accident

When taking part in a skydiving exercise, one may have a reasonable expectation of safety. On April 1, a 35-year-old Colorado man was killed when he hit the ground after taking part in a tandem skydiving jump that turned fatal accident with his 28-year-old instructor. The instructor survived the impact but sustained critical injuries. The skydiving instructor was flown to Penrose Hospital in Colorado Springs where he was listed in critical condition.

Colorado truck accident: trucker injured after pile up on I-25

Colorado State Police report that recently, two separate multi-vehicle accidents ended up sending a truck driver to a local hospital. The multi-vehicle truck accident occurred on northbound Interstate 25 at mile marker 128 in Fountain. A total of five vehicles caused the highway to be closed to traffic beginning at around 1:30 in the afternoon, with the left lane of the highway opening shortly before 3 in the afternoon and the right lane reopening shortly before 4 in the afternoon.

Cell phone use could be to blame: 2 killed, 1 injured

More often than not, motorists do not fully understand the risk they undertake every time they drive on Colorado roads. These dangers are real and ever-present each time someone gets behind the wheel of a vehicle. Furthermore, these dangers may be exponentially compounded when a negligent driver chooses to use their cell phone while driving. On March 31, a man thought to be operating his cell phone while maneuvering his vehicle gravitated towards the dirt shoulder of a roadway north of Denver, causing a fatal accident that killed two men and seriously injured a teenage boy.

2 car accidents leave 4 hospitalized

Colorado citizens are unfortunately reminded time and again that when drivers fail to follow the rules of the road, unintended consequences often occur. Troopers from the Colorado State Patrol reported two different car crashes which both occurred on March 23, sending four people to two hospitals. One car accident victim was airlifted to St. Anthony Hospital & Medical Center in Denver, while the other three injured were taken to Mercy Regional Medical Center.
