The car accident statistics for the beginning of 2013 indicate a significant increase in the number of hit-and-run accidents involving pedestrians in Denver.

As a follow up to Recent Car Accident Statistics for Denver and Aurora, Colorado (Part 1), here are some additional facts about motor vehicle accidents in these two counties in recent years. While Part 1 focused on the total number of car accidents that involved pedestrians, including juveniles, below are statistics regarding the number of hit-and-run cases involving pedestrians in 2011, 2012 and the first few months of 2013.

  • Denver hit-and-run accident statistics
    • In 2011, there were 58 hit-and-run accidents involving 62 pedestrians in Denver, with 10 of these injured pedestrians being juveniles.
    • In 2012, there were 74 hit-and-run accidents involving 77 pedestrians in Denver, with 9 of these injured pedestrians being juveniles.
    • In January through February 2013, there were 16 hit-and-run accidents involving 17 pedestrians in Denver, with 4 of these injured pedestrians being juveniles.
    • The hit-and-run accident statistics for the first two months of 2013 represent an increase in the monthly average of such accidents by about 25 percent (when compared to the monthly average of hit-and-run crashes for 2011 and 2012).
  • Aurora hit-and-run accident statistics, when compared to similar statistics for Denver, are significantly lower.
    • In 2011, there were 45 hit-and-run accidents involving 34 pedestrians in Denver, with 11 of these injured pedestrians being juveniles.
    • In 2012, there were 43 hit-and-run accidents involving 33 pedestrians in Denver, with 10 of these injured pedestrians being juveniles.
