Collision Involving a Vehicle and a Truck Causes Oil Spill

According to the local news, a Kirkland 47-year-old woman was involved in an accident on Interstate 405. The Washington State Patrol has reported officially that the accident happened sometime Sunday night. Authorities claim that the northbound lane of the I-405 in Bellevue was closed during many hours after the accident.

The woman was allegedly driving her Toyota Camry when something caused her to lose control of the wheel, which caused the vehicle to hit a tanker truck. The authorities say that the trailer rolled down making the rig slide across the interstate.

The Washington State Patrol reports that the accident caused the truck to spill something like 3,400 gallons of gasoline. According to the official statement from the Department of Ecology and many other different sources, the oil allegedly reached the drainage system.

The reports say that both drivers had their seatbelts fastened and that the authorities are investigating the real causes of the accident. Up to this point it is still unknown if the oil has reached Lake Washington.

As a Bellevue car accident attorney I hope that both drivers will recover quickly and that the authorities will work hard to keep our stream from being polluted by the oil spill.

Any car accident related to the distracted driving of others should be taken to a personal injury lawyer in your area right away.

Man From Walla Walla Involved in a Roll Over Accident After Tire Blows Out

Several local news articles have stated that a cement truck was involved in a roll over accident about 15 miles just north of Dayton on Monday. The Washington State Patrol has reported that the accident happened due to a blown tire that led the truck to roll over entangling itself through traffic on Highway 12.

The driver, a 47-year-old man from Walla Walla was driving a Kenworth cement truck going westbound on the Highway 12 when, inadvertently, the left front tire of his vehicle blew out sometime after 9:40 a.m., the Washington State Patrol has reported.

Before landing in the ditch of the Highway 14’s eastbound lane, the truck rolled over. After the tragic accident, the lanes were all blocked and remained that way throughout the afternoon. The man was allegedly unharmed but the truck was totaled.

At this moment, the truck driver could have the help of a personal injury lawyer in his area to help him with the case. Many accidents happen due to malfunctions related to the vehicle’s manufacturer neglecting issues with their products.

As an Everett personal injury attorney I hope that there were no pedestrians or other vehicles present at the time that could have been involved in this accident.

Officials claim that the man was driving south, close to the 200 block of North Wenatchee Avenue around 5:30 p.m. when all of a sudden, according to the man’s wife who was also riding in the car, he started complaining he wasn’t feeling well. The driver allegedly lost total control of the vehicle and hit a parked pickup after slumping over his seat. Authorities are investigating the causes of the accident and condition of the road at the time of the collision.

News claim that the man was reported dead at the Hospital. There were no other reports about any others being injured. The cause of the man’s alleged medical condition is still unknown and according to the authorities, the pickup truck that was hit was unoccupied.

As a Wenatchee Personal Injury Lawyer I offer my sincere condolences to the family of the victim in this sorrowful accident.

A personal injury lawyer can always lend a helping hand whenever you’re involved in a car crash so don’t delay, contact one as soon as necessary.

Edmonds Man Killed in Truck Accident on I-90

News outlets reported that a 26-year-old Edmonds man lost his life in an accident on Interstate 90 near Ellensburg Monday afternoon.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident occurred roughly 11 miles west of Ellensburg on Interstate 90 at approximately 1:10pm Monday. The 26-year-old was driving his 1994 Toyota pickup truck westbound on the interstate when, for unknown reasons, he veered off the roadway, overcorrected his vehicle and struck a westbound 2000 Toyota 4 Runner driven by a 15-year-old Gold Bar male. The Toyota continued across all traffic lanes to the other side of the road where the driver lost control. The vehicle then rolled, ejecting the driver.

The 26-year-old Edmonds man was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident, resulting in his ejection. Emergency crews arrived on the scene and transported the man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he pronounced dead. The 15-year-old Gold Bar driver escaped the accident uninjured.

Washington State Patrol troopers are continuing their investigation into this incident, however they have stated that they believe intoxicants played a contributing role in the crash.

As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I’m deeply saddened to learn of this tragic accident. I’ve witnessed similar accidents in the past and the effects they’ve had on the friends and family over my time as a car accident lawyer. I hope they have a strong support system to help them cope with their loss and my heartfelt condolences go out to them at this time.

Big Rig Strikes MAX Train, Injuring 8 in Hillsboro

Media sources reported that eight people suffered moderate and minor injuries in an accident involving a big rig and MAX light rail train in Hillsboro, Oregon Monday afternoon.

According to reports from the Hillsboro Police Department and Tri-Met investigators, the accident occurred shortly after noon on Monday when a big rig trailer collided with an eastbound MAX light rail train, blocking the intersection of Southeast 10th Street and Washington Street. When crews from Hillsboro Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, they discovered the front windshield of the light rail train smashed in and moderate damage done to the tractor portion of the big rig.

Rescue crews immediately began triaging the injured at the scene and found that the driver of the big rig and seven passengers onboard the train were in need of treatment for varying injuries. The big rig driver and five MAX passengers were taken to several local hospitals for treatment. A seventh train passenger was taken via private vehicle to a hospital while the eighth passenger refused medical treatment at the scene.

Hillsboro Police officials and Tri-Met investigators are continuing their investigation into the cause of the accident by interviewing both drivers and checking the operations of the signaling system at the intersection. As of yet, no statement has been made as to whether any citations may be issued.

As a Vancouver personal injury lawyer, I’m greatly relieved to hear that no one was more seriously injured in this potentially deadly accident. If you’ve suffered injury as the result of an accident that was caused by the negligence of another, contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to learn more about your rights as they pertain to the matter.

Fatal Snoqualmie Pass Accident Blamed on Distracted Driving

News agencies reported that a series of collisions that occurred on Snoqualmie Pass Monday morning that left an elderly couple dead and injured several others is being attributed to a truck driver’s inattention.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the 64-year-old truck driver was traveling on Interstate 90, 26 miles west of Cle Elum, in his 2006 Peterbilt tractor truck and trailer when he slammed into the rear end of a 2000 Jeep Cherokee, sparking a series of accidents. The Jeep then crashed into a semi-truck, which in turn struck a sedan which then struck the rear of another semi-truck at approximately 10:50am Monday. The vehicles were reportedly stopped for slowed traffic on the interstate.

The 64-year-old driver was not injured in the accident and was wearing his seat belt. The 68-year-old driver and his 73-year-old female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident when their Jeep was smashed from behind by the Peterbilt. The 46-year-old driver of the semi-truck initially hit was not injured in the accident. However, the 47-year-old female driver of the sedan was transported to Bellevue Hospital for treatment of her injuries along with her 35-year-old, 32-year-old and 43-year-old passengers. The 32-year-old driver of the center semi-truck was taken to an Ellensburg hospital for the treatment of undisclosed injuries.

Officials have determined that the accident was caused by the 64-year-old truck driver’s inattention, due to the fact that he did not slow for stopped traffic. Troopers are continuing their investigation into the crash prior to pursuing charges against the driver.

As a Bellevue car accident attorney, I’m saddened at the news of this tragic accident. In my years as a car accident lawyer, I’ve witnessed the devastating effects that similar accidents have had on the friends and family members left behind. I pray that they have the support they need as they mourn their loss and my heartfelt condolences go out to them at this time.

Motorcyclist Injured in Accident with Amphibious Vehicle

News outlets reported that a motorcyclist sustained moderate injuries in an accident involving a “Ride-the-Duck” amphibious tourist vehicle in Seattle Monday afternoon.

According to authorities, the accident occurred just prior to 2:30pm at the intersection of Third Avenue and Pike Street when the motorcyclist came to a stop in front of the amphibious vehicle at the traffic signal on Pike Street. The amphibious vehicle failed to yield, pulled into the intersection and struck the motorcycle. The biker, reported to be in his 50s, became “entangled” in the undercarriage of the “Ride-the-Duck” vehicle and was dragged across the intersection before coming through the back end of the vehicle. Witnesses found the victim roughly 20 feet from his motorcycle.

Emergency crews transported the motorcyclist to Harborview Medical Center for the treatment of his injuries. He was initially categorized as being in serious condition, but has since been reevaluated to satisfactory condition. Rescue workers stated that, when they arrived at the scene, the man was conscious and had been wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Authorities are continuing to investigate the accident and have yet to issue any citations.

As an Everett motorcycle accident lawyer, I’ve seen similar accidents in the past and am relieved to learn that this man was not more seriously injured in what could have been a deadly crash. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the direct result of the negligent actions of another driver, speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.

Lynnwood I-5 Car-Big Rig Accident Injures Man, Child

Media sources reports that a 19-year-old Lynnwood man and his 12-year-old passenger were moderately injured in an accident on Interstate 5 in Lynnwood Monday night.

According to Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary, the accident occurred during the evening commute in the southbound traffic lanes of Interstate 5 near 164th Street SW in Lynnwood. Authorities believe the 19-year-old driver was traveling in the left lanes when, for unknown reasons, his Honda struck the center interstate barrier. The impact forced the driver to lose control of the vehicle and cross all traffic lanes and strike a big rig trailer. The Honda became wedged underneath the wheels of the big rig’s trailer and was dragged for roughly 700 feet before the vehicle was able to stop.

The 19-year-old driver and 12-year-old passenger were transported to a Seattle hospital for the treatment of moderate injuries. The 19-year-old was treated and released within the same night, however the 12-year-old remained hospitalized well into Thursday. Updates on their condition were not available at the time of this release. The driver of the big rig was not injured in the accident.

Washington State Patrol officials are continuing to investigate the cause of the accident and suspect that the incident may have been a possible vehicular assault. At the moment, unsafe lane changing is suspected as a contributing factor to the crash.

As a Bellevue car accident lawyer, I’m relieved to learn that both victims are recovering from their injuries. I wish both of them a speedy recovery so that they may put this incident behind them. If you’ve been injured in an accident as the result of the negligent driving of another, speak with a car accident lawyer in your town to learn more about the legal options open to you.
