Colorado police say a driver fled a fatal car accident

When a Colorado car accident causes harm to another person, any driver involved in the wreck is required to stop. They are required to reasonably assist those injured, including calling for emergency assistance when necessary. Moreover, the drivers involved must await the authorities. A driver who leaves the scene of the accident before law enforcement arrives may be subject to worse ramifications than if he or she had remained at the car accident scene.

Hit and run car accident may have been caused by drunk driving

All drivers have a duty to protect their passengers as well as those around them each time they get behind the wheel. As part of that protection, a driver should be maintaining a clear head and having the ability to stay focused on the road. Driving under the influence in Colorado is a serious matter, and the associated penalties should not be taken lightly. A car accident that has been caused by an inebriated driver can lead to serious injuries or even death.

It may seem like common sense for a driver to stay alert and be fully present while behind the wheel, but anyone can become easily distracted. Colorado motorists who can't completely focus because they have been drinking or are driving too quickly can cause a car accident within seconds. Other people surrounding a distracted motorist may suffer injuries or possibly even lose their life due to the negligent driver.

Can keeping a phone accessible be cause for a car accident?

Keeping a phone accessible while driving can be extremely hazardous. When a Colorado driver is looking down at his or her phone, a car accident can happen within an instant. It can be very tempting for a motorist to want to grab the phone to see when someone has responded to a text for fear of missing something. When a driver is behind the wheel, he or she should be paying attention to the road because everything else can wait until later.
