Car accidents: three-car crash sends multiple people to hospitals

A driver who allegedly ran a red light is being faulted for a car accident in Colorado Springs that sent multiple people to the hospital. Colorado Springs police reported responding to the accident a little after 6 p.m. on the evening of April 11. The exact number of people involved in the accident was not detailed in the report, and it is unclear whether the driver will face criminal charges at this time. As with most car accidents, this crash is still under investigation. 

According to the limited information provided in the report, a vehicle was negotiating a left-hand turn in an intersection when the driver drove through a red light. This caused a three-car pileup that closed the intersection for some time. Unfortunately, red-light cameras were not yet activated in that area, as they are slated for activation in the spring. 

The exact number of injured parties as well as the extent of their injuries was not reported. Police say this accident is representative of an uptick in traffic violations throughout the area. Once the red-light cameras are installed, only drivers who are in the intersection after the light turns red will be ticketed during a 30-day grace period. 

Car accidents causing injury are always carefully investigated by Colorado police. In this case, if it appears the driver was materially responsible for the accident, he or she could face fines or even jail time. Even if no criminal charges are filed, the injured parties are entitled under state law to file personal injury suits against the driver, and possibly against anyone else with ownership interest in the vehicle involved in the crash.
