An unexpected death is nearly always a tragedy. When the person who died is a young child, the situation can be even more devastating. No parent wants to lose a child at any age, and it can be immensely difficult to cope with the fact that another driver caused a fatal accident that claimed a child's life.

It was recently reported that such harrowing outcomes resulted from an accident in Colorado. The incident involved a pickup truck and an SUV. Apparently, the driver of the pickup truck was traveling south when he failed to remain in the correct lane. After drifting into the northbound lanes, his vehicle crashed head-on with the SUV, causing the truck to flip completely once before coming to a stop on the driver's side. The SUV hit a guardrail and come to a stop.

Unfortunately, an 8-year-old child in the SUV suffered fatal injuries and was declared dead at the accident site. A passenger in that vehicle suffered serious injuries, and the driver suffered minor injuries. The driver of the pickup truck suffered serious injuries in the incident. Authorities did not believe impairment or speed contributed to the accident.

The family of the child killed in this Colorado car accident are undoubtedly heartbroken by the outcome. Any type of fatal accident can be difficult for a family to accept, and this may be one that takes a substantial amount of time to cope with. As they work to handle this event, the family may consider filing a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault in efforts to recover monetary damages due to for their loss.
