Accident On Highway 305 Claims The Life Of A Passenger

According to the local news, a 50-year-old woman who was killed after being involved in a head-on collision was unfortunately killed. The Washington State Patrol released a statement claiming that the woman was identified after her body was retrieved from the accident scene on Highway 305 last Friday.

The official reports show that the accident happened some time around 6 in the afternoon just in front of the Cedar Glen RV Park. The investigators working on this case think that the driver responsible for the crash was driving while intoxicated. The 46-year-old woman from Poulsbo was driving northbound when suddenly she veered into the opposite lane and collided head-on against the 1993 Saturn carrying the victim. Officials say she wasn’t wearing her seat belt.

The driver of the struck vehicle was severely injured and was rushed to the Hospital by a helicopter along with the drunken driver.

Authorities blocked the roadway for four hours so the accident scene could be cleared up.

As an Olympia car accident lawyer I extend my most profound condolences to the family of the woman who tragically lost her life because of this accident. The thoughts and hearts of all personal injury lawyers are with them.

Fortunately, this accident will serve as an alert to all motorists who think they could possibly get away with driving under the influence. Don’t be a victim of a drunken driver, contact a proficient lawyer as soon as needed.

Man Involved In Crash On I-82 Was Following Too Close

According to local news, a 59-year-old man from Toppenish had to be rushed to the hospital after an accident involving two vehicles on Interstate 82.

Official reports from the Washington State Patrol show that the driver was going south on the Interstate around 6:20 pm on Monday night when he failed to slow down and ended up rear-ending a truck driven by a 45-year-old man. The truck was hauling a trailer and according to the reports from the authorities, the truck driver was not injured.

According to the news, both men were wearing seat belts and the local police had to hand a citation to the injured driver for driving and following too close to another vehicle.

I, a Bellingham auto accident lawyer I hope the injured driver will learn his lesson and stay away from any future issues while on the road.

As a personal injury lawyer I urge all motorists in the state of Washington to stay alert for icy roads. There are many weather conditions that will make the roads less of a safe place but if the driver is watchful and mindful of the possible issues he may face, most accidents can be prevented.

Man From Tenino Was Involved in Single-Car Crash Saturday

The many local news outlets that have reported the latest accidents in the state of Washington claim that the 26-year-old man who was involved in an accident Saturday is in a stable condition.

According to the news, the driver involved in the accident is from Tenino. He is under the care of the Harborview Medical Center. The Washington State Patrol has reported that the 26-year-old man was driving his 1988 Ford Bronco sometime around 7 a.m. on McDuff Road when his vehicle mysteriously left the road, hit a tree and finally rested on its top.

The authorities are still investigating the causes of the accidents. Up to this time, it is still unknown whether the driver was drowsy or going through any particular health problem during the time of the crash. The Washington State Patrol claims that no charges were pressed against the man.

As an Olympia car accident lawyer I hope that the injured man involved in this accident will recover in a timely manner. Personal injury lawyers can be of great assistance whenever a victim is involved in an accident that was caused by the malfunction of a particular item in the vehicle. Never hesitate in contacting a lawyer as soon as the accident happens.

Safe Driving Reminder Is Issued By the Authorities Because of The Holidays

According to many news sources from all over the nation, the authorities across the country are dedicating most of their time and all of their local and transportation forces toward law enforcement. This particular dedication and efforts are part of the Click It or Ticket and Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday mobilization.

Precautionary steps are important and are being taken by all local and state police forces so safety can be upheld on every roadway during this holiday season.

The authorities hope to educate the population by reminding all drivers that seat belts must be worn at all times while driving. Other safety measures like placing your cell phone away while behind the wheel and staying away from any drinking before driving are also heavily publicized.

An Illinois State Police official who was interviewed for the article says that all interstates will be highly patrolled and that the same should happen all over the country. There will be many safety checks so no spot is out of the sight of the troopers.

As an Olympia car accident lawyer, I hope that these measures will be entirely successful during the holiday season. Hopefully this success will be kept even after the holidays. Many families depend on this dedication.

Personal injury lawyers have taken care of several cases related to the negligence of drivers during this season.

Chevrolet Issues a Recall for 2012 GMC Savana Vans

The news and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have reported that Chevrolet has issued a recall for at least 1,798 2012 GMC Savana van vehicles. The announcement from the company stated that the main issue behind the recall is the dual-stage air bags being malfunctioning. They may end up not inflating correctly whenever the vehicle suffers a case of frontal collision.

The NHTSA agency also announced that the questionable vehicles violate the federal safety standards. According to the article, the issues related to the recall alert are linked to the vans manufactured between June and October of 2011.

GM announced that they have the recall planned and that there is a certain date they will notify owners of the affected vehicles. All recalled vans must be taken to GM dealers so the faulty air bags can be replaced free of charge.

As a Tacoma car accident lawyer I understand that problems with the air bags in any car can make a minor accident turn into a life-threatening situation for drivers and passengers. All owners will hopefully be able to get their vehicles fixed in a timely manner.

Personal injury lawyers will always be able to assist you especially if you feel like you were exposed to a threatening situation caused by a neglecting company or third party. Contact a professional lawyer as soon as possible whenever you need one.

Driver Interactive Simulators Teach College Students About Distracted Driving

According to several news sources from all over the country, there’s a Virtual Driver Interactive simulator that is allegedly helping students from Mount Marty College to learn more about impaired and distracted driving.

It is well known that it takes just a few careless moments behind a wheel to provoke a major tragedy. With this fact in mind, students are learning to understand what kind of consequences distracted and impaired driving can have and what kind of major collisions one can suffer while talking on the phone, texting behind the wheel or even driving under the influence.

This effort has been very popular, according to the news. During lunch hour, the simulating machine is available to all students who like to gather around the two units installed in the Roncalli Center. According to College representatives, the machines were brought from the Sioux Empire Safety Village of Sioux Falls.

This event was made possible because of a grant the Office of Highway Safety offered the Mount Marty College and its students.

As a Seattle car accident lawyer I hope that what the students were able to learn with the stimulators may be put to good use in their real lives. Hopefully, none of the students who have been educated about drinking and driving through the Driver Interactive simulator will ever need a personal injury lawyer for a car accident related case.

Man from Granger Injured After a Two-vehicle Collision

According to recent reports from the Washington State Patrol, there was an accident last Saturday involving a man from Granger who ended up being injured.

According to the news and officers from the Washington State Patrol, the man was driving his vehicle off the road just north of Sunnyside when another vehicle driving southbound drifted to the right and unfortunately crashed into his car.

The whole collision happened on Highway 241 and according to official reports from the Washington State Patrol, the accident was considered to be a case of distracted driving. There haven’t been any more details regarding the causes behind the crash and officers are still investigation more thoroughly.

As an Olympia car accident attorney,I sincerely hope that the men involved in this crash are not going to sustain any severe injury. Hopefully, this will serve as an example to the drivers and readers of how deadly distracted driving can turn out to be.

Any personal injury lawyer can tell you many cases are results of distracted driving. Preventable crashes shouldn’t be an issue anymore, I urge all to never drive unless you’re completely attentive of the road ahead of you.

Man from Ephrata Hits Guardrail on Route 17

According to the Washington State Patrol and local news sources, there was a crash last Friday sometime after 3 p.m. on Route 17. Reports show that the crash happened just north of Moses Lake.

The driver allegedly involved in the one-vehicle accident was a 21-year-old from Ephrata and he was driving a 1992 Cadillac when he fell asleep and collided against a guardrail.

The authorities have claimed that they still don’t know all the details regarding the accident or what caused the man to allegedly fall asleep but an officer from Washington State Patrol says that drugs or alcohol can be possibly related to the collision.

As a Bellingham car accident attorney I understand that many different factors may pose as accident facilitators but I urge all of you to be extremely cautious of drowsy driving. Be aware of the signs your body is getting tired, pull over in a safe place, take a nap if needed but try not to continue to drive if you feel you will not be able to remain awake and alert.

Whenever you or a loved one is involved in a car accident related to distracted driving, remember that the best person you can turn to is a personal injury lawyer in your area. Don’t delay in contacting someone you can trust, right away.

Washington State Ferry Under Maintenance, Cracks Discovered

According to local news, the ferry Chetzemoka has been found to be unsafe after the Washington State Ferries inspectors noticed dash-like cracks in one propeller. The 64-car ferry might have presented the issue after a stainless steel piece being cast improperly.

After an extensive investigation of the overall state of the one-year-old ferry, the local authorities realized that five different blades were cracking right near the hub. After some tests were run under a metallurgical analyst, reports show that the pieced was actually placed incorrectly as predicted at first glance. Studies also show that the contents of carbon in the stainless steel were extremely high.

The problem with the carbon content being high is that it makes the propellant more fragile to cracks and minor damage. According to the state, the reports show that the propellers are being repaired in a timely manner.

As a Seattle personal injury lawyer I hope nobody will ever get hurt riding in one of the local ferries. Let’s hope the authorities are investigating the case and that soon, the Chetzemoka ferry will be working like new.

Accidents involving public transportation are more common than you might think so if you ever find yourself injured after an accident caused by public transit, do not delay in calling a personal injury lawyer in your area.

Rollover Crash Leaves Driver and Passenger Injured

As stated by various news sources there was a rollover crash in which two people were hospitalized early Wednesday morning. The crash that took place on Highway 20 allegedly involved the use of alcohol or drugs. The Washington State Patrol reported that the 55-year-old driver had to be airlifted to the hospital due to conditions of the crash. The passenger, a 38-year-old man was taken to the hospital by ground ambulance. Both injured victims were allegedly from Newport.

The detailed conditions of both driver and passenger were not disclosed to the public. Authorities have reported that the crash occurred when the 55-year-old driver was heading eastbound on Highway when her Jeep went off the right shoulder. As she tried to maneuver, the vehicle swerved to the left and ended up into the eastbound ditch where it rolled and then crashed.

According to the Washington State Patrol there were no other reports of anybody else being involved with the crash. Authorities are still investigating the crash, charges are still pending.

As a Spokane car accident attorney I hope both people involved in this crash a speedy recovery and urge all of those who may be tempted to drink and drive not to do so. One of the major causes of deadly accidents is driving under the influence. Be aware that whenever involved in a car accident, have a personal injury lawyer by your side so all your questions may be answered and your case may be taken handled by the most skilled professionals.
