Car accidents: Driver hits and kills pedestrian crossing road

Certainly, all Colorado residents know by now that driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol invites tragedy. However, inexplicably, some people continue to ignore such facts, resulting in car accidents that cause the loss of thousands of lives each year nationwide. In a recent example, a man struck and killed a pedestrian in Colorado Springs and now faces serious charges, including driving under the influence of drugs.

The incident happened on a Monday evening. According to the Colorado Springs Police, a car hit the man while he was trying to cross the street. The victim, identified as a 44-year-old Colorado Springs man, was transported to a local hospital. However, sadly, he died from serious injuries suffered in the crash.

Reportedly, the 27-year-old male driver remained on the scene, and police determined he was impaired at the time of the crash. He has since been charged with driving under the influence of drugs, careless driving resulting in death and vehicular homicide. He has been taken into custody. Police noted that the incident marks the fourth pedestrian fatality in Colorado Springs this year.

While this driver's life has changed significantly due to his poor choices, more importantly, a man has died, it seems simply from being in the wrong place at the wrong moment. Car accidents like this one often leave a grieving family seeking answers and retribution for the person responsible. An experienced Colorado personal injury attorney can review case details and discuss a person's legal options moving forward. If successfully litigated, a wrongful death lawsuit can provide surviving family some comfort as well as help compensate for unexpected financial concerns caused by lost future income, funeral costs and other expenses that may follow this type of tragedy.
