Drunk driver kills one, injures another

Colorado residents have been provided with a wide array of data and education informing them just how dangerous it is to drive after drinking for many decades now. Yet, too many people continue to ignore these warnings and facts and grab their keys after downing one or multiple beers or other beverages. The result of this decision has not changed and another accident that happened recently just keeps supporting the need for people to change their ways.

Early on a Sunday morning, a ridesharing driver was transporting a passenger along the streets of Denver when their vehicle was struck by another car. The driver of the ridesharing vehicle is said to have been injured although no details have been released about their condition or prognosis at this point. The person who had hired the ridesharing driver did not even make it to a hospital before being identified as dead due to the trauma of the accident.

The at-fault driver reportedly left the accident scene and was eventually apprehended by officers. He has since been charged with multiple criminal offenses including vehicular homicide driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a deadly accident among others. It is not known if the families of either people in the ridesharing vehicle have or will pursue civil compensation.

When laws fail to stop people from making negligent choices that harm others, those involved might want to talk to a lawyer to learn how they can take action.
