35-Year-Old Man Killed In Hit And Run

 Posted on April 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

A 35-year-old man has been killed in a pedestrian accident in Denver, according to 9 News. The accident happened at the intersection of 9th Ave and Colorado Blvd in the very early hours of the morning. Police believe that the pedestrian was crossing the street in or near a crosswalk, but they don't know who had the right of way. They believe that had the driver stopped to check on the pedestrian, he might have survived. The driver did not stop, and the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. Using some evidence collected at the scene, Denver Police were able to make an arrest later the same day. Police continue to be concerned about the rising number of hit-and-run accidents in Denver this year.

Each year, more than 4,000 pedestrians are lost in traffic accidents across the country, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In 2010, 36 of those pedestrian fatalities occurred here in Colorado. Authorities are concerned because the numbers in 2013 seem to be trending upward. There are a number of reasons why there might be more pedestrian accidents, including distracted drivers, as well as pedestrians who are not paying attention themselves to their surroundings. It is very important that both drivers and pedestrians be conscious of road safety at all times.
