Colorado car accidents: Man killed on side of highway

Many Colorado drivers have, at one time or another, experienced car trouble while on the road and have had to pull over to the shoulder to address the problem. Most often, people in such a predicament can safely do what needs to be done and continue on their way. However, sometimes car accidents result from these situations, either during the attempt to exit the road or when the driver or passengers are standing outside the vehicle once it has stopped. In fact, tragically, a Fort Lupton man was recently killed on a highway in what is believed to have been a hit-and-run incident.

The 30-year-old was driving home from work on a Tuesday evening when he pulled his vehicle over to the side of the highway. Investigators have said they believe the man experienced car trouble and was standing outside the vehicle at the time of the crash. Reportedly, officers responding to a call about the incident found the man lying in a ditch.

Unfortunately, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene. According to a close family member, his wife had been talking with him on the phone shortly before the crash. She went out looking for him and came upon the crash site after he failed to arrive home when expected. Sadly, he also leaves behind a 2-year-old son.

Fort Lupton police have said the investigation into this incident is ongoing. When the driver believed to be responsible is found, evidence may indicate his or her negligent and/or reckless behavior resulted in this young man's death. Often, in car accidents of this type, the victim's surviving family members exercise their right to pursue the matter within the civil justice system. This family may choose to consult with a Colorado attorney experienced in personal injury law who can apprise them of their legal options.
