Car accident on Interstate 25 took the life of a toddler

First responders have to see a lot of sights the general public is not prepared to deal with. Car accidents can be very troubling scenes, especially when there are fatalities involved. Most first responders will say that the worst of these are when children are the ones hurt. Some had a challenging evening this week when a three car accident on Interstate 25 in Colorado Springs injured three people and took the life of a toddler.

A car driven by a 23-year-old woman was traveling north on -I-25 in Colorado Springs when she attempted to pass an SUV. When she tried to get back in the lane in front of the SUV the two cars collided, sending the woman's car spinning out of control. After crossing the median, her car entered oncoming traffic and struck a pickup truck traveling south. Her car ended up on the guardrail while the pickup truck spun toward the median. The truck eventually turned over and came to a stop on its side.

The SUV was operated by a 25-year-old man who was unhurt in the incident. The pickup truck was driven by a 38-year-old woman. She suffered serious injuries while her passenger, her 17-year-old son, suffered minor injuries. The woman who had been driving the car suffered serious injuries as well.

A 19-month-old child was in the back seat of the car. The mother had taken all necessary safety precautions such as having his seat rear-facing and having both the child and seat properly restrained. Despite the mother's attempts to ensure the child's safety, the toddler did not survive the crash and died at the scene.

Police state drugs and alcohol are not suspected. The incident is still under investigation as police work to establish the cause of the car accident. If, as seems apparent, the evidence suggests driver negligence was responsible for the crash, those injured may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the party or parties deemed culpable. An experienced personal injury attorney can assist the victims by educating them about their rights, determining what type of claim fits their situation and working to help them secure a favorable judgment.
