An auto accident on I-25 caused southbound lanes to be closed for over an hour, according to the Denver Post. A sedan that had lost control was hit by a semi-truck; a Ford Bronco that may have been involved in some way is being sought by Police. Fortunately, neither driver was injured in the wreck, but two children, a two-year-old and a 19-month-old, who were riding in the car were taken to the hospital for observation. Police are investigating the cause of the crash. While we don’t know what caused this accident, or the final outcome for the children who were taken in for observation, whenever a car is hit by a semi, the people inside are at tremendous risk of injury or death. Has your child been injured in an auto collision? Contact an experienced Denver auto collision attorney immediately to protect your options. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), not only are car crashes the leading cause of death among all people ages 5-34, but they assert that 13,000 lives were saved in 2009 by seat belts and child safety seats. All of this points to the extreme importance of everyone in a car being properly restrained. If you have children, be sure that you have the correct type of safety seat, that it is installed correctly, and that you restrain your children in it correctly every time they get in the car. Then, be sure to use your own seat belt. Not only will it protect you, but when your children see you using it, it helps start a good habit for them, and they will be more likely to use it themselves when they are old enough not to use a child safety seat. If your child has been injured in an auto collision, contact a dedicated Denver auto collision law firm immediately. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your children. John Fuller can help ensure that your child gets the best medical attention possible, and that insurance companies pay the full value of claims, as well as seeking compensation from negligent drivers.

According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, 18 year old, Michael McElroy, was involved in a downtown Colorado Springs car crash early on June 11, 2010. The driver, Rickey Miller, was suspected of speeding when the car rolled over on Interstate 25 near the Fontanero exit. During the rollover accident, McElroy was thrown from the car and taken to the hospital in critical condition. Neither the driver nor the passenger were wearing seatbelts and Miller has since been arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault resulting in injury. This Colorado Springs car crash caused major delays on I-25—especially the morning commute.
