In this wrongful death action, plaintiffs, Jerry and Ruth Zapp, appeal the judgment dismissing their complaint against three
Denver police officers and the City and County of Denver, defendants. We affirm in part, reverse in part, and remand for further
proceedings. Plaintiffs sought damages arising from the death of their 18-year-old daughter who was killed when her vehicle was struck
by a stolen automobile during a high-speed police chase. The complaint alleged that the defendant police officers, acting
in their official capacity and within the scope of their employment, negligently caused the victim's death. It also alleged
that, in conducting the chase, the officers recklessly disregarded the attendant foreseeable and probable injurious consequences
inherent in the circumstances.
