Colorado passenger dies in head-on car accident

On Behalf of | Mar 7, 2014 | Uncategorized |

A tragic accident as a result of a head-on collision occurred on the highway. The car accident took the life of one individual and injured two others. Colorado authorities indicate that the crash was caused by a driver who drifted into another traffic lane.Authorities arrived at the scene and conducted an initial investigation into Monday afternoon’s accident. The investigation revealed that a Subaru operated by a male driver, veered into the northbound lane of the highway for unknown reasons. A Toyota sedan operated by a female driver, observed the vehicle headed toward her and she attempted to avoid the Subaru. Unfortunately, her attempt failed and the vehicles collided head-on.The driver of the Subaru was injured and was flown to a medical facility. The driver of the Toyota also suffered injuries and was transported to an area hospital. Tragically, the passenger in the Toyota was declared dead at the scene.

A car accident involving death is often devastating, especially when an innocent life has been cut short due to the actions of a negligent driver. Surviving family members of the deceased are also victims, since they have been left with the task of arranging a funeral for a loved one who has been taken suddenly. While family members are mourning, they have the right to seek justice on behalf of the deceased and bring closure for themselves in a Colorado civil courtroom. The injured driver of the Toyota may also have similar rights under the law to recoup financial compensation in a personal injury suit.
