Car accident kills passenger in at-fault vehicle

| Jun 27, 2014 | Uncategorized |

A three-vehicle accident recently occurred, which ended in a fatality. A 73-year-old man was killed, and it’s not known if anyone else was injured. Colorado authorities are still investigating the car accident.The accident happened on a recent Sunday afternoon along a highway. According to reports, the driver of a Toyota sedan was initially traveling in the southbound direction. The driver reportedly veered into the northbound direction and crashed into a semi-truck. After the initial impact, a third driver slammed into the rear of the Toyota. The crash caused the semi to careen off the road and into a ditch.Sadly, a male occupant in the Toyota sedan died from his crash injuries. Authorities believe that a medical episode may have been a contributing factor. The road was shut down while authorities continued to investigate. The condition of others involved in the crash has not been reported.A car accident is, by far, a devastating moment for victims who are injured. Surviving family members are prone to even more devastation when they learn that their loved one is deceased. It’s not known if any citations were issued in this case; however, the family of the deceased victim may wish to pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible driver for justice. The civil court system in Colorado may award the plaintiff’s damages in an amount deemed appropriate if evidence presented is to the satisfaction of the court. This may result in much-needed financial relief as they cope with their sudden loss. Source:, “1 killed in crash in Fairplay”, Kelly Sommariva, June 15, 2014
