A rollover accident that occurred on the Colorado 93 south at about 3:30pm on Thursday and ended with a head-on collision has left five people seriously injured. According to law enforcement officials, the accident involved two passenger vehicles – a sports utility vehicle driven by a 71-year-old man and a minivan driven by a 37-year-old woman who had two small children in her car. The man had been driving when his vehicle drifted off of the roadway, leading him to try to pull it back onto the road, which caused the car to cross over the center dividing line. At this point, the man’s car got into a head-on collision with the minivan, causing the minivan to veer off and the man’s sports utility vehicle to rollover down the embankment.
The man was reportedly ejected from his vehicle when the rollover accident occurred, and investigators are currently unaware at this time whether the man was wearing his seatbelt or whether some seatbelt malfunction may have led to the man’s ejection from the vehicle. All of the individuals in the minivan had reportedly been wearing the proper safety restraints at the time of the accident.
Should investigators determine that a seatbelt malfunction or some negligence on the part of the man driving the sports utility vehicle was responsible for causing (or worsening) the accident and resulting injuries, the car accident victims will be entitled to compensation for their injuries and can secure a settlement by filing a car accident lawsuit.
