A Commerce City man was seriously injured in a hit-and-run accident after being struck by a gray 4-door sedan while crossing Parkway Drive with the help of a walker.
The crash occurred on Friday morning right before 6 a.m., on the 6100 block of Parkway Drive. The gray sedan was apparently headed west and fled the scene before police could arrive. The pedestrian who was hit was taken to a local hospital for treatment for the serious injuries he had sustained in the accident.
The police are asking that anyone with information call (303) 288-1535.
Hit-and-Run Accidents are a Nationwide Problem
According to Insurify.com, out of every 10,000 drivers, 4.6 have at least one hit and run violation on their record. In 2016 in Colorado alone, there were 31 fatalities due to hit and run accidents.
Hit-and-run accidents are terrible, and often have devastating results for the pedestrian who has been hit. Victims of these types of accidents are often left to feel helpless, unsure where they’ll be able to turn for help, and unsure how they’ll be able to pay for the expensive medical treatments their injuries require.
It is critical that hit-and-run accident victims contact an experienced attorney as soon as they are able, to find out what their legal options are, and how they may be able to start to put their lives back together again.
