Colorado car accidents: 2 killed, 3 injured in crash

Two men were recently killed in a terrible crash in Franktown, which is southeast of the Denver area. Three other individuals suffered serious injuries in the wreck. Sadly, in Colorado and elsewhere car accidents of this nature occur far more frequently than most would like to think.

On Dec. 21, a family of four was heading home from a basketball game when their SUV was struck head-on by another vehicle. Authorities have said that a 70-year-old male was driving on the northbound side of Highway 83 when, for reasons unknown, he crossed over the center line and hit the victims' car. Both drivers died in the wreck.

A woman -- age 47 -- and two teenage boys -- ages 18 and 15 -- were injured and transported to a medical facility for treatment. The extent of their injuries is unknown. However, they were admitted to the hospital with serious injuries, and as of the latest report, they have yet to be released.

After car accidents like this, investigators will work diligently to be able to provide answers as to why the incidents occurred. In this particular case, as both drivers died in the collision, this could take some time. Upon completion of the investigation, the surviving victims may be able to seek compensation for their losses. Even though the man thought responsible for this wreck has passed away, legal claims may be filed against his estate. Personal injury and wrongful death claims that are successfully navigated may be awarded monetary judgments by a Colorado civil court, which could certainly help this family focus on grieving the loss of their loved one, recovery and moving forward.
