Two people were tragically killed in Grand Junction the night of June 24, according to local sources. Colorado police believe the accident may have been precipitated by alcohol use. Fatal motor vehicle accidents caused by drunk driving are perhaps even more tragic because of their preventable nature.
There can be no doubt that driving a semi-truck is a dangerous job. Even on the best days, truck drivers face near-continuous risks from road conditions, weather and other drivers.
A man who was previously involved in a car accident in May has tragically died, according to local sources. Colorado officials who are responsible for handling fatal motor vehicle accidents of this type have confirmed that the crash, which occurred on May 17, has resulted in the death of one man. Police are apparently still investigating the crash.
A man police believe may have been under the influence of alcohol at the time of an alleged hit-and-run accident has been detained, according to local sources. Pedestrian accidents are unfortunately common, but Colorado police have managed to track down the individual believed to be responsible for this one. The driver is suspected of having been drunk at the time of the crash.
