A 3-car crash is being investigated after seven people were injured in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Police reported that a dark-colored Ford truck was speeding when it ran through a red light and hit a Volkswagen who then hit a Hyundai that was traveling the same direction. Seven people were transported to the hospital where two are being treated for serious injuries. A 23-year old was arrested after he fled the scene on foot after the crash happened. The man is being charged with leaving the scene of the accident, vehicular assault, and other charges.
Thousands of drivers are treated in emergency rooms each year due to vehicle accidents. It’s estimated that the cost for disabling injury is $61,600 in vehicle accidents. This only adds stress to victims who are already dealing with injuries and the physical and mental limitations that they’ve caused. If an accident has caused you damages at no fault of your own, you may have grounds to pursue legal action against the driver of the vehicle that caused the accident.
