A little boy who was nearly hit by a car was saved when his father pushed him out of the way, according to 9 News. Francisco Casillas, Sr. pushed his son, Francisco Jr. out of the way when a car drove over the curb and into the family’s front yard near 17th and Peoria in Aurora. The boy was sideswiped by the car, but suffered only minor injuries. If it weren’t for his father, the child might have been struck directly, and the outcome could have been much much worse. Police do not believe that the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and she was issued a citation for careless driving.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration traffic accidents involving large trucks account for over 50,000 injuries and about 3,000 fatalities every year. When a car or small truck is involved in a collision with a large, heavy commercial truck, the incredible difference in momentum can mean a terrible result for anyone inside the passenger vehicle. Of course, in most cases, commercial truckers are experienced, safe drivers but with the inherent difference in size, if a commercial vehicle accident is caused by negligent driving by the commercial driver, the outcome can be tragic.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, several hundred cyclists are killed in traffic accidents every year, and more than one in five deaths is the result of a collision with a vehicle at an intersection. In many cases, the accident occurred because the driver did not see the cyclist. Because cyclists have very little protection, it is important for both the driver, and the cyclist to proceed with caution and pay close attention when entering crossing zones or intersections. Colorado law requires all vehicles to stop for pedestrians at a crosswalk.
