The pedestrian was taken to two different hospitals but died upon arrival at the second medical facility. None of the occupants of either vehicle were injured. Police do not believe speeding or consumption of drugs or alcohol were causes of the accident.
Pedestrians have rights outlined in their state’s traffic safety regulations. When the rights of pedestrians are violated and they are injured in car accidents, they can seek financial compensation by filing a personal injury claim or their families can file a wrongful death suit in the case of a fatality. Colorado residents who have had loved ones injured or killed in an accident will want the advice of a knowledgeable professional as they develop their petition to the court.
