This weekend, dozens of people gathered together to remember David Nanney. According to 9News, Nanney, who was legally blind, was waiting at the bus stop with two of his classmates from the Colorado Center for the Blind when a car suddenly slid on a patch of ice and barreled into them. Nanney pushed the two women out of the way and was critically injured in the process. The women, who were also injured, managed to avoid death due to Nanney’s heroics. Unfortunately, David Nanney passed away the next day at a local area Colorado hospital.
While Denver’s wintery weather may be beautiful, snow and ice can cause serious and fatal accidents. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, Denver drivers should always slow down when driving in wintery weather. Even roads that have been treated with de-icers can be slippery! Also, never use cruise control when driving in snow or ice and always be sure your tires have good tread.
