Traffic was brought to a crawl this morning after a truck traveling on Northbound I-25 hit a guardrail and crashed in Thornton. The Denver Post is reporting that the truck crashed just around 7:50 a.m. near 130th Avenue. One other vehicle was damaged in the crash. According to reports the driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries. Truck crashes can be so dangerous because of the size of commercial vehicles, their loads, and the time it takes them to stop when they realize they are in danger.

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.

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.
