Man killed by driver who fails to yield right of way

Motor vehicle accidents may well be a reality of life but that does not take away the trauma that Colorado residents may experience after a collision occurs. Even without a serious physical injury, emotional upset can last and cause issues for people. The challenges and long-term effects can certainly escalate quickly when there is bodily injury or death that results. The individuals directly involved and their family members, friends and colleagues can all face difficulties in the wake of these tragic events.

Such is the case today for those who knew a 46-year-old Calhan man. He was killed in a senseless car accident when the driver of another vehicle failed to yield the right of way at an intersection. The crash occurred on a weekday morning not far from Schriever Air Force Base. The man was declared dead at the scene of the accident. The at-fault driver was injured but survived.

Reports indicate that investigators believe that alcohol could have contributed to the crash although no other details about that have been released. With or without the presence of alcohol, one man's life was taken unnecessarily by another.

People who must mourn the loss of their loved ones in accidents like the above deserve help. Having a consultation with an experienced personal injury attorney after a crash may be a good way for people to learn about their options for compensation or other forms of help available to them.
