Lakewood Pedestrian Injured After Being Hit by Two Cars | Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

According to a Denver Post story, a man sustained “life-threatening injuries” after being hit twice while crossing West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood on Saturday night. The first car that hit the pedestrian sped away. The 45-year-old man, who has yet to be identified, was then hit a second time by a different vehicle. The driver of the second vehicle stopped and was later arrested for “suspicion of vehicular assault.” The pedestrian may have been crossing against a red signal but was in a crosswalk when struck. Police are looking for the car, “a recent-model silver sedan,” that sped away from the accident and urge anyone who has information to call the Lakewood Police department.

According to the Colorado State Patrol (CSP), 42 pedestrians were killed after being hit by automobiles in 2008. The sad fact is that some of these cases were hit-and-run accidents that remain unsolved. If you happen to be the witness of a hit-and-run accident, take a moment to write down any information you can remember from the accident and talk to a local law enforcement representative as soon as possible. Information that may seem insignificant to you may actually be important information.
