Colorado car accidents: Springs police searching for driver

The Colorado Springs Police are looking for a vehicle and its driver involved in a hit-and-run on June 20. Police often rely on the public to help them locate drivers that are involved in hit-and-run car accidents. In this case, the vehicle is believed to have been a Chevrolet Sonic from either 2012 or 2013.

The driver of the vehicle struck a 31-year-old woman on Platte Avenue in Colorado Springs. The driver was heading east at the time and the woman was crossing the street from south to north. The driver did not stop and was last seen heading east on Platte Avenue.

The pedestrian was seriously injured and died as a result. No further information is yet available about the victim. The Major Accident Unit believes that based on evidence at the scene the vehicle in question would have sustained damage to the passenger side of the vehicle including the body, windshield, hood and roof.

As the search for the vehicle and its driver continues, the family of the victim will have the unenviable task of burying her prematurely. Once the driver has been apprehended, the family may be able to get some questions that they must have answered -- such as why the driver fled and just left their loved one there to die. As is the case with many fatal pedestrian vs. car accidents, the family may also exercise their right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver not only to receive monetary relief, but also to obtain a sense of justice on behalf of the victim.
