Car accidents: 1 dead, 1 injured in Denver

A serious crash in Denver's City Park resulted in one fatality, according to authorities. Denver police responded to the accident, which occurred on North Colorado Boulevard in the early morning of Sept. 14. Officers are still investigating the cause of the crash, but as with most car accidents calling fatalities, there could be several causes for the tragedy. No one has been arrested at this time. 

According to the limited information provided by the report, it appears two vehicles were involved in a collision around 2:15 a.m. Police believe the driver and a passenger from one of the vehicles may have fled on foot from the site of the crash. They have not yet been found by law enforcement, but police are seeking the support of the community in tracking them down. 

One person, who has not been publicly identified pending notification of next of kin, was pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear whether this individual was driving the second car. Another person identified as a passenger was rushed to a local hospital with injuries described as serious. Police still do not know what predicated the accident, but their investigation will continue until a cause is identified and, and the driver who fled the scene is located. 

When the driver is apprehended, that individual will likely face criminal charges at least for the crime of fleeing the scene of an accident. It is also the job of police resources to determine the causes of car accidents regardless of criminal intent. Should the driver be found responsible for the crash, further criminal charges could be filed. Separately, the injured party and the family of the deceased may be entitled under Colorado law to file wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits, respectively, against the driver in civil court.
