Car accidents: 2 dead in Colorado

A mother and her child tragically lost their lives in a four-vehicle car crash near Fort Lupton, according to local sources. Colorado State Patrol say several other people were also injured in the crash. As with most car accidents of this scope, this particular crash is still being investigated. So far police have not filed charges against anyone involved, and they have not ruled out foggy conditions as a possible contributing factor. 

According to the accident report, the crash happened on Highway 52 the morning of Feb. 23. The specific details of the crash remain elusive, but it has been confirmed that a 29-year-old woman and her 6-year-old son were both killed in the accident. Neither individual was wearing a seat belt. Her two younger daughters, who were also involved in the crash, were taken to a local hospital for treatment. 

A man in another vehicle was also hospitalized for injuries described as life-threatening. Thankfully, no one in the other two vehicles was injured. Police closed the highway to facilitate their investigation. As of this report, they have not found a specific cause for the crash. Some have said speed may have been a factor in the accident. 

If the evidence suggests that one or more of the drivers involved in the crash violated the law, that individual or individuals could face criminal charges. However, not all car accidents in Colorado lead to criminal filings. The families of the deceased and the injured parties are still entitled to legal recourse through wrongful death and/or personal injury lawsuits that are filed in civil court.
