Some car crashes have very clear details that authorities are able to piece together quickly. That is not the case for a recent collision here in Colorado that put four people in the hospital. When a serious accident like this happens, it is imperative that police figure out exactly what occurred and who may have been at fault. Fortunately, investigative techniques can help them do so and police will make use of all available resources to bring justice to those who may deserve it.
Authorities say that the crash in question happened on a recent evening at a local intersection. One car was heading westward and crossing the intersection when it allegedly hit another vehicle going in the opposite direction. Four people had to be rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police report that the injuries suffered by two people in one of the vehicles are life-threatening.
Police are not disclosing many details at this point about exactly how this crash happened or who may be at fault. They report that they are still working to determine if there were any contributing factors, such as excessive speeding or the consumption of intoxicants. It is possible that they know more than they are saying publicly, but will likely issue an update once doing so is deemed prudent.
Depending on what an investigation discloses regarding fault, the two victims with life-threatening injuries may have options for legal recourse through the Colorado civil justice system. They may each decide to file a personal injury claim naming any person or entity deemed responsible for the crash. An attorney can represent victims in court and advocate for their best interests.
