Most drivers are aware of the dangers on the road. A car accident can occur at anytime, but when a driver is impaired in some way, the likelihood of a crash occurring increases greatly. A recent accident on Interstate 70 may just illustrate this point since it was determined that the driver of the car involved was impaired.
A Colorado man recently lost his life while riding his bicycle when he was hit by a man suspected of driving under the influence. The driver of the vehicle was reportedly just three blocks from his home at the time. This car accident has impacted the entire community.
Colorado police were working to piece together exactly what happened after a recent fatal crash in Denver. The preliminary evidence suggests the deadly car accident occurred after a Buick with three occupants is said to have run a red light. The car then collided with a taxi cab occupied by the driver and a passenger.
When a serious car crash occurs, the process of investigation begins as soon as emergency responders arrive. Colorado police begin by assessing the scene, and noting the location and orientation of the vehicles involved. Damage to the vehicles and nearby structures is also noted, as is the presence of any skid marks. The authorities use this information, combined with eyewitness testimony and other tools, to determine how a car accident took place and which party was at fault in the matter.
A Colorado family is currently beginning the long and difficult process of grieving the loss of a loved one. The death came as a result of a fatal accident on Colorado 93. Police believe that a 61-year-old woman was driving her Jaguar convertible southbound when a failed passing maneuver led another vehicle to crash into her car.
When we consider the risks that we all encounter while out in the world, most of us think about the most common hazards that we face. We worry about heart disease and cancer. We consider how to avoid obvious dangers and often avoid high-risk activities. We take precautions to ensure our safety while on Colorado roads to reduce the likelihood of being involved in a fatal accident. However, there are some types of accidents that are simply unavoidable, and when such 'freak accidents' occur, they send shock waves throughout the community.
When a family loses a child, the grieving process is different from the loss of an adult relative. A child encompasses the potential of a human life, and when a young person dies, so does all of the hopes and dreams that his or her loved ones held for their future. When that loss is the result of a fatal car accident brought on by the negligence of another party, it can be difficult for family and friends to accept or overcome, and a sense of injustice can permeate the weeks and months that follow.
Colorado drivers share the road with a multitude of other vehicles, including commercial and personal vehicles, motorcyclists, bicyclists and even pedestrians. Drivers have a responsibility to act in a manner that preserves the safety of everyone on the road. However, one recent motor vehicle accident has led many in the cycling community shocked and angered.
The shock of death is something that is hard to handle. When the deaths result from an accident caused by the negligence of another, the anguish is magnified. On a recent Monday morning two women walked five children to school in Colorado Springs. As they were heading home, with one woman pushing her 14-month-old baby in a stroller, they were struck by a vehicle. The fatal car accident has made headlines across Colorado.
