When an accident happens, there is always a chance that any of the people involved could be hurt. If a person is injured in a car accident, the driver is required by Colorado law to wait on authorities to arrive and provide reasonable aid to the victims who were hurt, if applicable. A negligent driver who decides to abandon the scene will face serious legal repercussions, which may be worse than if he or she had waited for the police to arrive.
