The Denver Post is reporting that at least one person has died after a Denver RTD bus ran a red light and collided with a car and a truck. The accident happened around Saturday afternoon at the intersection of 8th Avenue and Lincoln. At least 15 other people, including some bus passengers with injuries were transported to local hospitals. Witnesses reported seeing the bus run through a red light, t-bone a car passing through the intersection and then strike a truck which was following the first car. The truck was pushed into a utility pole in the parking lot of a nearby 7-11 convenience store, striking so hard the cab was nearly ripped from the bed of the truck.  Bus accidents can result in serious injuries for a number of reasons. Bus seats do not have seatbelts, leaving passengers to protect themselves in the event of a sudden stop. Items such as briefcases, backpacks, and strollers are also not secured on a bus – leaving passenger exposed to injury as these many heavy items fly through the air. There is probably nothing scarier for a commuter than the prospect of their car colliding with a public transit vehicle. A passenger car is no match for the weight and size of a bus.  If you have been injured as the result of a bus accident, please contact Denver RTD bus injury attorney John Fuller. Whether you were the passenger on a bus or the passenger or driver of a car that collided with a RTD bus, you may be able to recover compensation for your damages. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffer.

A man accused of striking and killing a 15-year-old pedestrian last week in Colorado Springs was reportedly going 30 m.p.h. above the posted speed limit. According to the Denver Post, Colorado Springs police reported that Eric Ryan was traveling approximately 70 m.p.h. and passing cars when he allegedly hit Ali Aashiq at about 6:50 a.m. on the morning of March 15th. Police say Aashiq was crossing Circle Drive when he was struck. A passing nurse performed first aid but Aashiq died at the scene.
