A Weld County man has been sentenced to prison for a December crash that killed his friend. The Denver Post is reporting that Bobby Lucero was sentenced to four years in prison for a DUI rollover accident that killed his friend London Burch. Authorities said that Lucero had a blood alcohol level of .177, more than twice the legal limit, when he crashed his Jeep. Burch was partially ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Weld County District Court Judge Thomas Quammen sentenced Lucero Thursday and said he should have learned from his previous 1994 drinking and driving offense. The U.S. Department of Transportation defines alcohol-related deaths as “fatalities that occur in crashes where at least one driver or non-occupant involved in the crash has a positive Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) value.” According to Alcoholalert.com, between 2000 and 2008 there were 5,703 alcohol related fatalities in the state of Colorado. Unlike the average accident, when an accident includes a driver who was legally impaired during the crash, it is almost always immediately obvious who was negligent at the time of the collision. Typically injuries caused by drunk drivers are severe since drunk drivers often fail to apply their brakes prior to a collision as an unimpaired driver would almost defiantly do. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver or a loved one was killed because someone decided to drive while ability impaired, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney experienced in defending victims of drunk driving crashes.

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. The loss of 4,378 lives in pedestrian/motor vehicle crashes in 2008 is an awful statistic. This amounts to close to twelve deaths everyday of the year. According to WalkingInfo.org, there were 69,000 reported pedestrian injuries in 2008, nearly one every 8 minutes. In the state of Colorado alone, 44 pedestrians lost their lives in 2008. Nothing can be more devastating than the loss of a loved one, especially if that death was caused by a negligent, reckless or dangerous action on the part of another person.
