Hit-and-run injures 6-year-old in Colorado

A driver suffered injuries in a hit-and-run accident, along with a six-year-old child who was in the vehicle. Though the person who hit them fled the scene, the authorities have now located him and made an arrest.

The crash happened on Monday, January 6. According to reports, a man stole a white pickup truck. This theft was reported to the police the Sunday before. On the day of the crash, the man saw a police vehicle and, perhaps feeling nervous that he would get caught since he was on parole at the time, he began driving erratically. He then ran head-on into a white car with a woman and her child riding in it.

The woman and child had serious injuries, though they did survive the initial crash. The authorities responded and airlifted them to hospitals for treatment.

The man who was driving the truck was not alone. He had passengers in the vehicle, and they did not have seat belts on. They were seriously hurt in the crash, as well.

After he fled the scene, the police figured out that the 31-year-old man was the one they were looking for. Due to his prior arrests, they had mug shots of him, which they put out on social media. The man was quickly found and arrested.

When people make these types of decisions, things often spiral quickly out of control. In some cases, innocent people suffer injuries that change the rest of their lives. It is very important for them to know what options they may have to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages and other significant costs.
