Pedestrian killed in hit-and-run auto accident

Colorado pedestrians must be fully aware of their surroundings and be cognizant of other drivers on the road. Because many drivers operate their vehicles under the influence, are distracted, or are simply driving too fast, auto accidents are common. An accident can be compounded by a driver fleeing the scene. Those who have been hurt or lost a loved one in such an accident should seek legal advice immediately.

A pedestrian was hit by a car that subsequently fled the scene, but the driver was found several days later. According to the investigation, the driver went through a red light and crashed into a pedestrian in a crosswalk. The pedestrian was rushed to the hospital but later died. Three days later, the driver was located, placed under arrest and is facing charges of vehicular homicide. The investigation is continuing.

Being involved in a car accident is difficult enough without the driver fleeing the scene. If the wreck involved a pedestrian, it is even worse because their injuries will be more severe. When a person is injured, they can have major medical expenses, lost wages and the need for long-term care. With a fatality, the family left behind must think about the future and how they will cope. After a hit-and-run crash, the injured person or their family must consider their right to compensation in a legal filing.

If you have been injured in an accident caused by a negligent driver, you should contact a law firm experienced in hit-and-run pedestrian-auto accidents as soon as possible.
