Vail Pass Rollover Accident on I-70

police rushing to accident

It’s been a tough summer on I-70. On July 20th, a semi-truck caught fire on East Bound I-70 at Georgetown. Since the location of the fire was after a long downhill slope, it’s possible that the trucks brakes caught fire while descending. Luckily there were no injuries involved. If you drive a semi, please remember to adjust your brakes before attempting to descend I-70. Just one week after, we are writing about another truck accident on I-70, injuring five people, including children. What Happened? According to the Colorado State Patrol, a semi-truck was coming Westbound down Vail Pass when it collided with a Ford...

bus accident article

Statistically, bus accidents happen far less frequently than many other kinds of traffic incidents. But that’s little consolation if you happen to be a passenger on a bus when a crash does occur. In fact, because of the way buses are configured, a bus accident can produce more serious injuries than if you were a passenger in a car. Buses typically lack seat belts and air bags. They have a higher center of gravity and are more prone to rollover crashes than other forms of transportation. Dealing with the aftermath of a bus injury can also present complex legal challenges; here are...

i 70 truck fire near georgetown cleanup

The I-70 truck Fire Accident The recent heatwave has driven many (more than 152,000) to the mountains during the weekend. If you were up near Georgetown on Saturday, 7/19, you might have seen the smoke from I-70, not caused by the heatwave, but a fire from a semi-truck, loaded with watermelon.

Officials shortly updated in a Tweet that a single lane is open for traffic, and long delays should be expected. Fortunately, nobody was injured during the fire, and most of the watermelon cargo...

passenger-in-a-car-accident

Almost nothing can ruin your day or your life faster than a car accident. Even in the best of cases, with minor or no injuries involved, a car crash can be a deeply unsettling and confusing event.

i70-truck-crash

The fiery, horrific images made national news. On April 25, 2019, traffic stalled along I-70 west of Denver became the scene of an inferno as a seemingly out-of-control semi-trailer crashed into the line of cars and trucks at high speed, causing four deaths and numerous injuries. The 23-year-old driver of the semi, Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos, has been charged with four counts of vehicular homicide and dozens of counts of assault and attempted assault. Investigators say he told them that his brakes had failed on the steep descent into the metro area from the mountains and that he closed his eyes, bracing...

FACTORS INVOLVED IN REAR-END CRASHES In a high percentage of...
