According to the local news, an accident involving a school bus and a small vehicle happened last Tuesday sometime around 8:40 in the morning in Pasco, Washington.
The official reports from the Washington State Patrol reveal that the vehicle hit the school bus at the intersection of Fenway Drive and Road 60. The troopers at the scene announced that three students were on board at the time of the accident but weren’t injured in any way.
Paramedics responded to the call and checked the students without having to transport them to the local Hospital. While the authorities cleared up the road, the kids were taken to the school on another bus.
The Washington State Patrol is still investigating the accident. No details on how the accident took place or whether alcohol or drugs played a role in the collision were revealed to the media.
As a Bellingham car accident lawyer I’m glad to hear there were no injured students as a result of this accident. As a lawyer and a parent, I hold our children’s safety as a priority. I’m certain that the authorities will work hard to investigate this accident and will come to a conclusion on what caused it in a timely manner.
Whenever you or a loved one experiences an accident that was caused by a distracted or erratic driver, contact a personal injury lawyer right away.
According to reports from the Washington State Patrol, a man from Monroe was rushed to the hospital early Monday morning after his motorcycle crashed.
The 48-year-old man was riding his motorcycle near the intersection of Highway 9 and 176th Street SE when a Kia Soul driven by a 17-year-old girl allegedly from Snohomish, was turning onto 176th Street SE. Both vehicles collided leaving the man with non-life-threatening injuries. Reports from the authorities say the girl was left unharmed.
There aren’t many details regarding the crash, but news articles stated that the motorcyclist tried to escape the heavy traffic by driving onto the shoulder before the collision.
As an Everett personal injury lawyer, I urge all drivers and bikers to be alert. A slow traffic won’t make your chances for an accident less likely to happen.
If you’re only worried about making somewhere in time, you will not be mindful of others sharing the road with you. In the case of a collision that might have been caused by distract driving, contact a car accident lawyer so you can be assisted by those who are familiar with the experience you went through.
News outlets reported that a motorcyclist sustained moderate injuries in an accident involving a “Ride-the-Duck” amphibious tourist vehicle in Seattle Monday afternoon.
According to authorities, the accident occurred just prior to 2:30pm at the intersection of Third Avenue and Pike Street when the motorcyclist came to a stop in front of the amphibious vehicle at the traffic signal on Pike Street. The amphibious vehicle failed to yield, pulled into the intersection and struck the motorcycle. The biker, reported to be in his 50s, became “entangled” in the undercarriage of the “Ride-the-Duck” vehicle and was dragged across the intersection before coming through the back end of the vehicle. Witnesses found the victim roughly 20 feet from his motorcycle.
Emergency crews transported the motorcyclist to Harborview Medical Center for the treatment of his injuries. He was initially categorized as being in serious condition, but has since been reevaluated to satisfactory condition. Rescue workers stated that, when they arrived at the scene, the man was conscious and had been wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Authorities are continuing to investigate the accident and have yet to issue any citations.
As an Everett motorcycle accident lawyer, I’ve seen similar accidents in the past and am relieved to learn that this man was not more seriously injured in what could have been a deadly crash. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the direct result of the negligent actions of another driver, speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
