A car accident can often result in serious injury. A recent Colorado accident involving a potentially intoxicated driver shows just how serious. While there is always a certain amount of risk involved with operating a vehicle, the chances of being involved in a car accident increase when a driver has been drinking.
The Colorado Springs Police Department now suspects that a driver involved in an accident recently may have been intoxicated at the time. The four car accident happened near Chelton Road on Platte Avenue in the Springs. Several people were injured as a result of the wreck.
When a car crash takes place, one of the most disturbing aspects of the incident is the sudden change of events. In some cases, victims have a few heartbeats of time in which to respond. In others, the force of the impact is the first clue that things have deviated from the expected course. Any Colorado resident who has been involved in a serious car accident understands the strange manipulation of time that can take place, whereby some things occur in a flash and others seem to move as if in slow motion.
When a car accident takes place, those involved are thrust into a series of events that can be physically, emotionally and financially devastating. Making matters worse, no one is prepared for a car wreck, and the sudden change in circumstances can bring on even more problems. Even when a victim survives a crash, he or she must deal with injuries that were sustained. Drunk driver negligence leads to many such crashes and may be the cause of a recent Colorado wreck.
As we climb into our vehicles and travel to see loved ones this holiday season, it can be easy to forget the risks that accompany road travel. For most Colorado residents, driving is a central aspect of our daily lives, and we can become complacent in our actions. One recent car accident serves as a reminder of the dangers that occur while on the road and a warning to all of us to take the time to drive safely and carefully, with consideration for those with whom we share the road.

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.
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.
When it comes to driving, there are a number of measures that drivers can take to reduce their likelihood of becoming involved in a serious accident. However, no matter how carefully an individual drives, accidents can still occur when other drivers fail to meet the same standards of care and concern. A recent car accident demonstrates how dangerous Colorado roads can be to drivers as well as passengers.
