A man was struck and killed by a light-rail train late Thursday night. According to the Denver Post, the man was apparently laying on the tracks at the Santa Fe flyover when he was struck by the train. Scott Reed, spokesman for RTD said,” The man was just over the crest of the flyover and the northbound train could not stop in time.” The accident happened at about 9:20 p.m. Unfortunately, accidents do occur, and this has been the case with light rail in Denver and throughout the U.S. Although generally safe, obstructions on the tracks, vehicles crossing intersections and mistakes made by the train’s operator can turn an uneventful commute into a nightmare. According to Scribd.com, between 1990 and 2000 there were a total of 4,624 injuries and 113 fatalities from light-rail accidents in the United States.

According to NBC11 news, a woman was injured in a Colorado motorcycling accident on Sunday. The motorcycle accident occurred on Highway 65, near where Lands End Road meets Highway 65. The driver of the motorcycle, Maryann Arter, was riding with a group of motorcyclists when she lost control of her motorcycle, hit the brakes, and skid 185 feet, before being ejected from her bike. She was airlifted immediately to a local hospital with arm and head injuries. According to reports, she only had a learner’s permit for the motorcycle and she was not wearing a helmet at the time of the Colorado motorcycle crash. Even though Colorado law does not require all Colorado motorcyclists to wear helmets, it is certainly in the driver’s best interest to.

According to the Greeley Tribune, 2 people were killed on Monday, May 31, 2010 when a pickup truck attempted to pass traffic on Colorado 392. The pickup truck hit another vehicle head-on and instantly killed both the driver and the passenger in that vehicle. The driver of the pickup truck was flown immediately to the Medical Center of the Rockies in Loveland. As of now, the identities of the victims has not been released. A head-on collision or frontal car crash is one of the most deadly car accidents due to the speed at which the vehicles are traveling.

Governor Bill Ritter signed legislation on Tuesday that requires jail sentances for repeat DUI offenders. The Denver Post is reporting that the new law imposes a minimum ten day sentence for a second DUI and sixty day sentances for each DUI after that. It permits work release programs but does not allow in-home detention if a second DUI occurs within five years of the first. “In Colorado, we were operating a revolving door for drunk drivers,” said Rep. Claire Levy, the House sponsor. “I can’t think of a bigger risk to public safety.” The Denver Post reported in a series of stories last year that some drunken drivers were sentenced to no time in jail on their fourth, fifth and even seventh offenses. The Post also found that sentences for repeat offenders varied widely from court to court and from county to county, and some offenders were spared jail time after they killed people while driving drunk. According to DUI-USA.drinkdriving.org, in Colorado in 2007, 27,969 individuals were arrested for drunk driving. There were a total of 198 fatalities caused in Colorado due to driving under the influence of alcohol.

The month of May is Motorcycle safety awareness month. It is a campaign by the NHTSA to remind drivers to be cognizant of motorcycle riders during the busier summer riding months. Riding a motorcycle is a rewarding experience – offering both a sense of freedom as well as unparalleled views of the world around us. Unfortunately, this reward comes with significant risks. According to the NHTSA, there were over 5000 motorcycle riders killed in 2008 and 96,000 injured. In 2009, Colorado accidents claimed the lives of nearly 90 motorcycle riders, accounting for almost 20% of ALL traffic fatalities in the state. When motorcycle accidents do occur, the injuries can be significant. In addition to road rash, riders involved in accidents suffer strained muscles and joints, broken bones, brain injuries, and in some cases paralysis. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment and long recovery periods. The costs associated with these injuries can be tremendous. If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you speak with an experienced motorcycle injury attorney. Contact John R. Fuller today at (303) 597-4500 for a free consultation and the help that you deserve after a motorcycle accident. Return to our Homepage Bookmark and Share
The Colorado State Patrol says two police officers were injured in a motorcycle accident while taking a motorcycle training class on Thursday. The crash occurred around 12:30 p.m. yesterday on Westbound C-470 near Ken Caryl. According to 9news.com, officers from the Jefferson County Sherriff’s Department were participating in a weeklong motorcycle training course and had just returned from lunch when the motorcycle accident occurred. Both officers were transported to Swedish medical Center. They are reported to have non life-threatening injuries. It is no secret that motorcycle riding is far more dangerous than riding in a car. Motorcycle riders have very little to protect them from other vehicles and the road other than their clothes, and sometimes a helmet and leather riding gear. Colorado law does not require motorcycle riders to wear a motorcycle helmet, though motorcycle survival rates are higher when the rider is wearing a helmet. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, you may want to consider speaking to a Denver motorcycle injury attorney. If the accident was the result of the negligence of another, you may be able to recover money for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. Denver lawyer John Fuller is a motorcycle rider himself. He understands the dangers and how to recover compensation for his motorcycle injury clients.
