According to the Broomfield Police Department, 21-year-old Anthony Corona was hit by a car while walking along East Interstate 25 Frontage Road, between Highway 7 and County Road 6, around 8:30 p.m. on April 4th. 

The police investigation revealed that Corona and an unidentified female had been leaving a baseball game when they got into an argument. Corona pulled over, left the vehicle and started walking, and was later struck by a car.

Corona passed away at the scene of the crash. The driver of the vehicle that struck him remained on the scene and cooperated with the police. No charges have been filed, and the police say that the driver was not distracted or intoxicated at the time of the collision. 

Police later determined that Corona and another person were suspected as being responsible for organizing the illegal street race that shutdown I-225 from Alameda to Colfax, in early March. 

That incident involved an estimated 600 to 800 vehicles that blocked traffic while participants raced each other on the highway, frustrating commuters and successfully preventing the police from gaining access and shutting the whole thing down. Apparently, some of the people involved taunted the police by waying weapons from their vehicles. 

The March 7th event was just one example of how large of a problem illegal street racing has become in the Denver area, a trend that has left many residents feeling unsafe in their own neighborhoods, and has resulted in serious injuries and fatalities.

Corona was reportedly facing seven counts including false imprisonment and reckless endangerment. The other suspect involved, a juvenile, has not been named.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
