A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. From the first part of your question, it isn't fully clear if you mean "charge" as in payment for storage, but in the second part of your question, you mention the car being held as evidence. That suggests the possibility of criminal charges. If that is the case, you should reach out to a Colorado criminal defense attorney. I hope you and the others were not injured badly, but if the other side was also injured, the outcome of those charges, if they are in the criminal context, could become relevant in a subsequent civil suit. Good luck
