Car accidents: 2 hurt in Colorado

An accident on Wolf Creek Pass has sent two people to a local hospital, according to authorities. Colorado State Patrol responded to the single-car crash in the early morning of Nov. 9, wherein a driver and passenger were both hurt. Car accidents of this type typically require careful investigation to determine their cause, and Colorado State Patrol is currently conducting such an inquiry at this time. 

Very little information was available as of this report, but it has been confirmed that police responded to the accident around 3:46 a.m. Officers went to the site of the accident on US. 160 in southwest Colorado, where they found a single vehicle had left the road for reasons unknown. It appears the vehicle had driven off the side of an embankment and traveled down between 300 and 400 feet before coming to rest. 

Car accidents: High school student dies in crash

An accident in Delta County has killed a senior from a local high school, according to local law enforcement. Colorado authorities confirmed the death of an unidentified student after an accident in Peach Valley. When the victims of car accidents are under the age of majority, their names are withheld from publication until next-of-kin can be notified, as is the case here. The police investigation is still underway at this time. 

No information about the nature of the accident was provided in the report, other than to say it took place around 9:15 p.m. the evening of Nov. 9. There is no word as to how many cars were involved or what predicated the accident. However, it has been confirmed that two current students at Delta High School, as well as two recent graduates, were all involved. 

Wrongful death suit possible in bicyclist death

Police in Colorado Springs have confirmed the death of a 62-year-old man after he was hit while riding his bicycle. The Colorado Springs resident was badly injured in a collision with a car and later died of his injuries. His family appears to have grounds to file a wrongful death suit against the motorist involved in the crash, separately from any criminal charges that are filed. 

Information about the accident was limited as of this report, but police say it took place around 1:20 p.m. the afternoon of Oct. 17. Apparently the bicyclist was headed southbound on Chelton Road when a vehicle turned in front of him. His bicycle hit the front fender of the car and he was ejected. Unfortunately, the man was not wearing a helmet and suffered severe injuries. Two days later he was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

According to the limited information provided by the report, a vehicle with a 66-year-old male occupant and a 65-year-old female passenger from Texas was traveling near Transfer Road around 10:47 a.m. For reasons that have not yet been articulated, the vehicle crashed, causing both occupants to be ejected.

The Colorado State Patrol has confirmed the accident occurred around 10 p.m. and involved a pickup truck and an SUV. The driver of the SUV was killed. As with most car accidents, this incident is still under investigation. 

According to the limited information in the report, it appears the pickup truck was traveling northbound on Ellicott Highway when the accident occurred.

A male driver and his female passenger were both killed in a serious crash in Montrose County on Oct. 13, according to local sources.

So far, as with many car accidents, this one is still under investigation, and a cause has yet to be determined. 

According to authorities, the couple were traveling on Transfer Road when the accident occurred. For reasons unknown, the 66-year-old male driver left the road in what police are calling an "off-road incident," causing the crash. His 65-year-old female passenger was reportedly ejected from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was also pronounced dead by arriving medical authorities. 

Wrongful death suit possible in fatal Colorado accident

One person is dead and three more have been hospitalized following a serious accident in Denver. Colorado authorities have arrested a 25-year-old man in connection with the crash, after he allegedly fled the scene. Criminal charges have been filed, and the victims and their families will be entitled to file personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits against him as well. 

According to the accident report, around 2:13 a.m. on Sept. 14, a sedan driven by the now-accused man was traveling north on Colorado Boulevard at a high rate of speed when the accident occurred. His vehicle struck another car turning left on a solid green light with enough force to kill the 29-year-old driver of the other car. The man apparently then fled the scene on foot. 

Car accidents: 1 dead in suspected drunk driving collision

A woman from Rifle is dead following a collision with a driver believed to have been drunk behind the wheel, according to local sources. Colorado authorities responded to the two-car crash that occurred the night of Sept. 28 on Interstate 70. With the suspected driver dead at the scene, no criminal charges will be filed, but as with many car accidents causing fatalities, other legal recourse may be available to the grieving family. 

According to the report, a 55-year-old man believed to have been drinking and driving was headed eastbound on I-70 outside of New Castle when he appeared to lose control of his vehicle. The car crashed into a guard rail and then ran through the median, colliding with a westbound vehicle driven by a 36-year-old loan officer. The woman was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead some time later. 

Car accidents: Man arrested in hit-and-run

A fatal crash in Denver has led to an arrest, according to local sources. Colorado police apprehended a 25-year-old man following what is believed to be a hit-and-run crash that killed one person and injured several others. Fatal car accidents of this type are always carefully investigated by law enforcement to ensure all pertinent facts are available both to prosecutors and to criminal defense attorneys present for the trial. 

According to the report, it appears around 2:15 a.m. the morning of Sept. 14, a 29-year-old woman was negotiating a left turn on a solid green light in Denver. A vehicle driven by a 25-year-old man was reportedly traveling southbound at a high rate of speed when it entered the intersection and struck the woman's car. She was killed in the impact.

Officers are still investigating the cause of the crash, but as with most car accidents calling fatalities, there could be several causes for the tragedy. No one has been arrested at this time. 

According to the limited information provided by the report, it appears two vehicles were involved in a collision around 2:15 a.m. Police believe the driver and a passenger from one of the vehicles may have fled on foot from the site of the crash. They have not yet been found by law enforcement, but police are seeking the support of the community in tracking them down.
