People who are involved in car crashes often feel as if the event lasts for an eternity. In reality, major life changes for those involved in a car accident can happen in just mere seconds. Before anyone knows what is happening, multiple vehicles can be involved in a collision that has harrowing outcomes.
It was recently reported that a fatal accident involving three vehicles took place in Colorado. Apparently, a bus was traveling south and two SUVs were traveling north when the driver of the bus failed to maintain control of the vehicle. The bus struck the left front side of the first SUV before crashing head-on into the second SUV. The bus then overturned before coming to a stop.
Several people were involved in the incident, including the three drivers and at least six passengers. The driver of the bus reportedly suffered serious injuries and was taken to an area hospital. The driver of the first SUV suffered fatal injuries and was declared dead at the accident site. The driver of the second SUV and three passengers were seriously injured. One passenger suffered fatal injuries and died at the hospital, and the two remaining passengers were uninjured.
This incident will affect the lives of many people, including those of family members of the deceased victims. A fatal car accident can lead to emotional and financial difficulties that may be compensable under Colorado state law. Individuals affected by such incidents may have reason to file personal injury and wrongful death claims against the drivers considered at fault in efforts to seek restitution.
