The Denver Post recently reported that a fatal two-car accident involving a cab on April 15 killed the 29-year-old cab driver and critically injured the 62-year-old passenger. The two males and two females in the second vehicle, all in their 20s, were transported to the hospital with serious injuries. Denver police said there is an ongoing investigation, but believe alcohol was involved with the second vehicle and no one was wearing a seat belt.
A Denver police spokesman characterized the crash as a “high speed red-light violation” and said preliminary indications were that the cab was struck by another vehicle that ran a red light. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 2012 data showed that there was a traffic fatality every 53 minutes, and the agency estimates “almost every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.”
“He was a great cabby,” Denver Yellow Cab general manager Randy Jensen told the Post. “He felt really good about the business he was in. It’s truly unfortunate.” Jensen declined to identify the cabby because his daughters, ages 11 and 13, had not yet been notified.
