Car accidents are all too common in Colorado. No matter how careful you are, it only takes one moment of carelessness, or the irresponsible action of one other driver on the road for disaster to strike. Unfortunately, the repercussions of such events are often severe. The victims may suffer serious injuries or worse. Such was the case in Arvada, Colorado when a two-vehicle collision injured two people and claimed the life of a third.
The auto accident occurred when a truck and a car crashed into each other in what is believed to have been a head-on collision. Of the two women in the car, one was killed in the crash. The other, reported to have suffered serious injuries, was transported to a hospital, as was the male driver of the truck.
The details of the crash have yet to be confirmed, but police were called to the scene a little after 7:30 in the evening. The road where the incident occurred was closed for what was predicted would be several hours. Police continue to investigate this tragic occurrence.
Sadly, incidents like this are no rarity in Colorado and countless families are left with voids that are impossible to fill. It can be difficult coming to terms with the loss of a loved one and that pain and suffering is increased still further when their death is the result of a preventable accident.
If you have lost someone you care about because of someone else’s negligence, you may want answers. An attorney can help to evaluate your case and advise you on the best course of action to take. He or she may also be able to help you seek compensation for your loss and bring justice to those responsible.
