I-90 near Snoqualmie Closed Due to Weather Condition

News outlets report that according to the state Department of Transportation, the eastbound lanes of I-90 were closed after a few trucks and vehicles jackknifed and got stuck in the snow. The roadways were closed so the authorities could clean the lanes after the weather related spinning of vehicles.

The Washington State Patrol pointed out that only a few vehicles were holding the traffic but they were concerned that the number of vehicles getting stuck because of the weather would be too great for them to handle.

After the incident that left no drivers injured, officials said that all drivers should remember that winter safety is essential. When driving over mountain passes, motorists should be extremely prepared. According to recent reports from the Washington State Patrol, the eastbound lanes of I-90 have been reopened already.

As an Everett personal injury attorney, I hope that all drivers involved in the bad weather-related incident are doing fine. Personal injury lawyers can tell you that many cases of accidents related to weather problems can end up being fatal.

Taking your eyes off the road for a second even can have horrible consequences, we must understand that our vehicle and our minds must be prepared for driving in harsh weather conditions.

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.

Car Accident Outside Pasco Injures 2 Othello Women

News sources reported that two Othello women sustained moderate injuries in a car accident outside of Pasco on Highway 295 Wednesday morning.

According to the Washington State Patrol, a 20-year-old Othello woman was driving her 2003 Honda Accord in the southbound traffic lanes of Highway 395 at about 6:45am Wednesday morning behind a slow-moving semi-truck. At the same time, a second semi-truck, driven by a 47-year-old California woman, was entering the southbound lanes of Highway 395 from Phend Road. The 20-year-old woman attempted to pass the slow moving semi-truck her vehicle was tailing, and moved into the lane of the second semi-truck, striking the 1997 Mack truck.

The 20-year-old Othello woman and her 31-year-old passenger sustained moderate injuries in the accident. The two women were transported to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland for the treatment of their injuries. No update on their conditions has been provided. The 47-year-old California woman was not injured in the accident.

Washington State Patrol troopers concluded their investigation and determined that the accident was the result of an unsafe passing maneuver. They have not yet stated whether any citations were issued in the accident.

As a Renton car accident attorney, I’m relieved to hear that no one was more seriously injured in this accident. If you’ve been injured in a crash that was the direct result of the negligent actions of another driver, it may be in your best interests to contact an experienced car accident lawyer in your city.

Two-Vehicle Crash on Highway 2 Injures 3

Media sources reported that three people sustained minor and severe injuries in a two-vehicle collision near Airway Heights on Highway 2 Tuesday night.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident happened at roughly 7:30pm near Flint Road just outside of Airway Heights on Highway 2 Tuesday night involving two sedans. While an investigation is still underway, authorities have stated that one of the passenger vehicles failed to yield to westbound oncoming traffic while attempting to make a left turn onto Flint Road. The two vehicles collided in a t-bone collision. The turning vehicle was thrown off of the roadway and into a nearby ditch.

Emergency crews arrived shortly thereafter and had to extricate the sole occupant of the vehicle thrown into the ditch by removing a section of the vehicle’s roof. The driver was then transported to a nearby hospital for the treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries. The two occupants of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries in the accident and were treated and released at the scene.

Washington State Patrol officials are still investigating the accident, but have stated that they do not believe drugs or alcohol played contributing roles in this incident.

As a Renton car accident attorney, I’m relieved to learn that no one was more seriously injured in this accident. I wish the victims of this accident a speedy recovery so that they may more quickly put it behind them. If you’ve been injured in an accident due to the reckless actions of another, call a car accident lawyer in your area to discuss the legal avenues open to you.

Rear-End Collision on State Route 104 Injures 2

News agencies reported that two people sustained moderate injuries in a collision Wednesday afternoon on State Route 104.

According to the Washington State Patrol report, the accident happened at 2:21pm on State Route 104, just west of the Hood Canal Bridge. A 61-year-old Sequim woman was traveling westbound on SR-104 in her 2006 Ford sedan when her vehicle struck the rear of a 1996 Volvo station wagon driven by a 48-year-old Port Townsend woman, totaling both vehicles. The Volvo was stopped for traffic at the intersection of SR-104 and Shine Road at the time of the accident. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The Port Townsend woman was taken by ambulance to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for treatment of injuries sustained during the accident. The Sequim woman was transported via helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of serious injuries. Updates on the victim’s conditions were not available at the time of this release. Both victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.

The Sequim woman has since been cited for speeding.

As a Bellingham car accident lawyer, I’m relieved to learn that no one was more seriously injured in this potentially deadly accident. I wish both women a quick recovery from their injuries. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the direct result of another driver’s negligence, contact a car accident lawyer in your area to discuss your legal options.
