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.
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.
According to trustworthy local news, an unfortunate accident has happened early this morning in Spokane, Washington.
The reports from the Washington State Police say that a semi-truck, which was stopped in Wenatchee by the authorities, allegedly struck a pedestrian who died as result of the accident.
The driver is under investigation by the Washington State Patrol for the hit-and-run case and will not be released until more conclusions can be drawn from this case. According to the official reports, the accident happened sometime after 6 a.m. today.

I, a Renton car accident attorney, offer my sincere condolences to the family of the man who sadly lost his life in this terrible accident. More precautionary actions must be taken to make road and pedestrian safety everybody’s concern.
Personal injury lawyers in Washington urge all drivers to be attentive of the road at any time of the day or night so similar accidents can be prevented. Hopefully, this accident will be an example of how deadly a vehicle can be and how important it is for all individuals to learn about sharing the road.
The local news sources have reported that a 22-year-old man from Tukwila was tragically involved in a single-vehicle accident sometime after 1:30 a.m. on Saturday. According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident happened on the northbound lanes of the State Route 599.
The reports showed that a Honda Civic was going northbound on Route 599 at a high speed when its driver lost control of the vehicle. The car rolled several times until it rested on the right shoulder of the road just south of Highway 99. The media release from the Washington State patrol shows that the driver, a 20-year-old man from Seattle sustained minor injuries but his passenger, the 22-year-old from Tukwila allegedly did not survive.
Authorities claim the driver had a seat belt on but not the passenger. There was a 24-year-old who was a second passenger, he had his seat belt on and was taken to the hospital after the crash for precaution. At this very moment, a personal injury lawyer could be assisting the passenger also involved in this tragic accident.
The news states that drugs or alcohol may have been factors behind this accident. As a Seattle car accident lawyer I’m deeply sad to hear of the young man’s death. My heart and thoughts go the family of the man whose life was lost in this tragic accident.
