Two people were injured in a hit-and-run accident on 14th Ave in Denver, according to CBS Denver. The crash, which occurred at 14th and Oneida during evening rush hour, happened when one SUV hit another one, forcing it off the road and into a house. The driver of the second SUV was mildly injured. One person inside the house was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police are searching for the first SUV. This is one more instance in what seems to be a rash of hit-and-run accidents in Denver. One neighbor said that she sees vehicles driving too fast along 14th Ave on a regular basis, resulting in a number of crashes.
Each year across the United States, there are over 5 million car accidents, according to the Department of Transportation. The vast majority of these accidents result in no injuries at all, or injuries that are easily treated. The bad news is that, when accidents cause serious injuries, such as spinal cord damage, thee story may be very different. Many serious traffic accidents result in large amounts of property damage, such as when a vehicle drives into a house, or medical bills reaching years into the future, and totaling into the hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. These accidents may result in higher costs than the car insurance policy limits will bear, causing real financial hardship to families who did nothing wrong except to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
