Man Injured After Hitting a Boulder Off The Road

A single car accident was responsible for a man from Allyn being injured on Monday evening according to the local news.

The accident happened some time around 11 p.m. when the man was driving on the left side of the Highway 3 and accidentally hit a boulder off the roadway. The vehicle spun around many times and rested on the driver’s side.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the man was taken to the Hospital as soon as the troopers arrived and his car was impounded.

Official reports show that the 77-year-old driver had his seat belt on at the time of the crash and that there were no other individuals involved in this accident. The Washington State Patrol is allegedly still investigating the accident but ruled out alcohol as one of the possible causes of the crash.

As a Vancouver car accident lawyer I hope that the driver will recover quickly and that the authorities will find out the real reasons behind this accident so similar crashes can be prevented in the near future.

I, a personal injury lawyer wish that drivers all across the Nation would be extremely cautious when it comes to distracted and even drowsy driving. Both behaviors can pose severe threats to you and your loved ones.

Pedestrian Allegedly Killed In Kennewick After Being Struck By Two Vehicles

A pedestrian related accident happened early Sunday and left many Kennewick residents allegedly shocked, different news sources state.

The man involved in the accident was reportedly dropped off on the exit ramp some time prior to the accident. He was walking on Highway 240 when two different vehicles hit him.

According to the official statement from the Washington State Patrol, the two drivers remained at the scene of the accident so they could collaborate with the investigators.

No other details regarding this accident were reported, only that unfortunately the man did not survive this sad accident. Gladly, the local authorities and the Washington State Patrol will be able to investigate this thoroughly so personal friends and family of the man who tragically lost his life will understand the cause behind his death.

The man was 23 years old at the time of the incident.

As a Bellevue personal injury lawyer I offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to those close to the pedestrian who was fatally struck last Sunday.

Any personal injury lawyer will be able to help you to defend your rights as the victim of an accident that was caused by a third party. Do not hesitate to find the right personal injury lawyer in your area anytime it’s needed.

Effectiveness of Ban Against Cell Phones While Driving Put to Test

Personal injury lawyers understand that using the cell phone while one’s behind the wheel can cause severe or even fatal accidents. Talking or texting while driving isn’t just a distraction, it’s a life-threatening risk.

Even though we are all very aware of these facts, the ban on cell phone use hasn’t been allegedly proved to be as effective as we once thought it would be. According to many news sources, the evidence is simply not conclusive. The reports from the many authorities investigating this show no significant change in the number of crashes due to less cell phone usage on the road.

The news have also stated that the number of cell phones in use since the year of 1990 went from 4 million to 322 million but the number of general car accidents has lowered.

The States where the cell phone usage was banned have seen no difference in the number of crashes, reports the Highway Loss Data Institute. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has noticed an increase in accident claims from drivers hiding their texting because of the ban.

As a Seattle car accident attorney, I understand that distracted driving can lead to many fatal accidents but maybe all we need is some more time to really understand the consequences of the cell phone ban.

Whenever a loved one is involved in an accident that was caused by a distracted driver, don’t hesitate and contact a personal injury lawyer right away.

Man From Walla Walla Involved in a Roll Over Accident After Tire Blows Out

Several local news articles have stated that a cement truck was involved in a roll over accident about 15 miles just north of Dayton on Monday. The Washington State Patrol has reported that the accident happened due to a blown tire that led the truck to roll over entangling itself through traffic on Highway 12.

The driver, a 47-year-old man from Walla Walla was driving a Kenworth cement truck going westbound on the Highway 12 when, inadvertently, the left front tire of his vehicle blew out sometime after 9:40 a.m., the Washington State Patrol has reported.

Before landing in the ditch of the Highway 14’s eastbound lane, the truck rolled over. After the tragic accident, the lanes were all blocked and remained that way throughout the afternoon. The man was allegedly unharmed but the truck was totaled.

At this moment, the truck driver could have the help of a personal injury lawyer in his area to help him with the case. Many accidents happen due to malfunctions related to the vehicle’s manufacturer neglecting issues with their products.

As an Everett personal injury attorney I hope that there were no pedestrians or other vehicles present at the time that could have been involved in this accident.

Pedestrian Allegedly Killed After Crossing Highway 20

According to local news, a vehicle on Highway 20 allegedly hit a 61-year-old pedestrian from Coupeville. She was trying to cross the road when she was tragically hit and, according to the news, killed.

The Washington State Patrol has identified the woman as Coupeville resident Toni Chapman, 61. She was struck by two vehicles at about 5:52 p.m. and died at the scene. The reports from the authorities show that the 61-year-old pedestrian was simply walking in the southbound lane close to the intersection of NW Broadway and Ebey Road when she was first hit by a vehicle driven by a 76-year-old from Langley and then, when she came to rest in the northbound lane of the Highway, she was hit again by a vehicle driven by an 18-year-old woman from Oak Harbor.

After this tragic accident, Highway 20 was shut down temporarily. As an Everett personal injury attorney I sincerely offer my deepest condolences to the family of the victim in this fatal accident. My heart and thoughts go to those who are mourning this loss.

As a personal injury lawyer, I urge all readers to be extremely careful at intersections and pedestrian pathways. The best way to avoid accidents is to stay alert at all times, do not forget it.

Southbound Hwy-101 Gets Much Anticipated Speed Reduction

News sources reported that the Washington State Department of Transportation posted new speed limit signs on the southbound side of Highway 101 in Olympia Tuesday in the effort of reducing traffic accidents.

The reduction in speed affects only the southbound lanes of Highway 101 from the Crosby Boulevard exit to the Interstate 5 interchange. The signs indicate that the speed has been lowered from 60mph to 45mph in the area. According to Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill, the reduction is part of a request to reduce the excessive number of accidents in the area and increase public safety.

“This all boils down to public safety. We believe that lowering the speed limit there is going to reduce collisions and that’s our goal,” Trooper Gill said.

The final decision to lower the speed limit in the area of mile marker 367, which has seen 134 accidents over the past year, was made by State Department of Transportation traffic engineer John Nisbet. The decision has met some criticism by locals and commuters that do not believe the reduction is necessary, but overall the public reaction has been in support of the change.

Troopers will be “using the minimum amount of enforcement necessary” over the next month. The 30-day grace period will see troopers enforcing the new speed limit with verbal warnings, however those traveling at excessive speeds will still receive tickets, as will those involved in collisions while exceeding the newly posted limit.

As an Olympia car accident lawyer, I’m glad to learn of the WSDOT effort to reduce accidents in our area. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you think was the result of the negligent actions of another driver, speaking with a car accident lawyer in your city will help shed light on the legal options available to you.

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.
