Car accidents: 1 dead in Colorado

A two-vehicle collision near Calhan has claimed the life of a beloved local softball coach and another individual, according to reports. Colorado authorities responded to the fatal crash that claimed the life of a 25-year-old woman. Charges may be upcoming for the other driver, and as is common in car accidents of this type, the family of the deceased victim could have additional legal recourse available to them at the state level.

According to the accident report, the 25-year-old assistant coach of a local school's softball team was driving on U.S. 24 around 1:30 a.m. the morning of Aug. 28 when the accident occurred. A vehicle traveling the other direction, driven by a 22-year-old woman, drifted into the oncoming lane, causing a head-on collision. The force of the impact destroyed both vehicles and killed the 25-year-old, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other vehicle, along with her 24-year-old female passenger, were both taken to local hospitals with severe injuries. State Patrol believes the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel. She has since been issued a court summons, though a date has not been made public. Any charges being filed against her have not been publicly announced.

Car accidents of this nature are especially tragic due to their preventable nature. It is possible the driver will face criminal charges in connection with the death of the 25-year-old woman, as well as the injury to her passenger. In addition, the family of the deceased and the injured woman are both entitled under Colorado state law to file wrongful death and personal injury suits respectively in civil court.
