1 injured in crash on highway with multiple collisions

A motorcyclist was seriously hurt in a crash that took place on Interstate 25. According to news out of El Paso County, the Colorado State Patrol came to the scene near Widefield at around 10:15 p.m. The authorities were informed that at least three crashes had already taken place in the area in the southbound lanes near where the crash occurred.

It's believed that a driver in a white truck was in the south lanes and realized emergency vehicles were present for the other collisions. The driver pulled into the left lane, but may not have given the motorcyclist enough time, cutting off his path and leading to a rear-end collision.

The motorcyclist was rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident.

In situations like this one, proving fault may be difficult. People merging into lanes of traffic have to be cautious that they're giving other drivers enough time to slow down and allow them to merge. If someone merges too closely, it could result in a crash, especially if he or she puts on his or her brakes after moving over a lane.

Although this case hasn't had any fault proven, it's important for you to understand that each case is its own. There are factors that play a role in each crash, and you may be able to hold a person liable, or partially liable, even if the crash is your fault in some way. Your attorney can help you by reviewing your case and dealing with the legal aspects of your case while you focus on recovery.
