A family in town for a wedding has received a terrible shock. A fatal car accident has ended the life of a 56-year-old woman who was visiting Colorado to attend her son's wedding. The incident has likely left a family reeling at a time when they expected to be celebrating a joyous event.
When a collision occurs between a motorcycle and an enclosed vehicle, there can be little doubt which party will sustain the gravest level of injury. A recent motorcycle accident in Colorado Springs exemplifies the disadvantage that motorcycle riders have when such an incident occurs. This event could also serve to remind drivers to always keep an eye out for motorcycles whenever driving on Colorado roadways.
Denver police have announced an arrest in a recent hit-and-run case that garnered a great deal of attention. Details of the incident have shocked locals and brought renewed attention to the dangers of walking along area roadways. As the case moves forward, it is hoped that drivers will have a heightened awareness of their responsibility to watch for pedestrians on the road, and that pedestrians will make every effort to ensure that they are easily visible to passing cars. It is also possible that a wrongful death suit may eventually be filed in the matter.
