Plea Deal Possible for Driver in Fatal RTD Crash – Denver Personal Injury Attorney

 Posted on September 01, 2010 in Uncategorized

A plea deal seems to be in the works for a contracted RTD driver who ran a red light and struck several other vehicles in April. According to The Denver Post, 2 people were killed and 11 others injured in the accident. Tidenekiyalsh Hawariyat, 30, was "charged with two counts of careless driving resulting in death and 11 counts of careless driving resulting in injury." All of the charges are misdemeanors in the state of Colorado. The Denver District Attorney's Office has elected to delay action on the possible agreement "because prosecutors have not been able to brief all the accident victims on terms of the deal."

The Research and Innovative Technology Administration at the Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports that there were 51,554 bus accidents in 2006. That adds up to nearly 6 bus accidents every hour in this country, proving that passengers are at risk of injury no matter the mode of transportation.

No passenger on a public transportation vehicle expects that their ride will end in injury, but accidents do happen. If you have been injured in a accident involving a public transportation vehicle or bus, you need a Denver personal injury attorney to review your case and help you determine a course of action. The attorneys at The Gold Law Firm are passionate about what they do and they will work hard to put their knowledge of personal injury law to work for you.
