According to reports from the Washington State Patrol, a man from Monroe was rushed to the hospital early Monday morning after his motorcycle crashed.
The 48-year-old man was riding his motorcycle near the intersection of Highway 9 and 176th Street SE when a Kia Soul driven by a 17-year-old girl allegedly from Snohomish, was turning onto 176th Street SE. Both vehicles collided leaving the man with non-life-threatening injuries. Reports from the authorities say the girl was left unharmed.
There aren’t many details regarding the crash, but news articles stated that the motorcyclist tried to escape the heavy traffic by driving onto the shoulder before the collision.
As an Everett personal injury lawyer, I urge all drivers and bikers to be alert. A slow traffic won’t make your chances for an accident less likely to happen.
If you’re only worried about making somewhere in time, you will not be mindful of others sharing the road with you. In the case of a collision that might have been caused by distract driving, contact a car accident lawyer so you can be assisted by those who are familiar with the experience you went through.
