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.
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.

According to the official report from the Washington State patrol, a 45-year-old woman was driving her 2006 Ford F-350 truck going northbound on SR17 just before 10 p.m. on Thursday when she lost control of the vehicle.
The road was allegedly icy which led the vehicle to roll. The driver was injured and taken to the hospital along with the passenger, a 46-year-old man.

The authorities are still looking into the accident and collecting information regarding the causes behind the crash. The news went on to confirm that no official charges were pressed against the driver.
As a Federal Way car accident lawyer I sincerely wish a swift recovery for both driver and passenger and hope that other drivers will keep from accelerating while driving under extreme weather conditions.

The accident happened just north of Selah and involved speeding and snowy conditions, two things that allegedly don’t go well together.

According to official reports, it’s not yet known how both drivers are feeling but the Washington State Patrol claimed they were both wearing their seat belts. No drugs or alcohol were found in the driver’s blood.
As a Seattle car accident lawyer I understand that there may have been many different factors that could have caused this crash but I still urge all readers to be extremely careful while driving under difficult weather conditions.
