The Washington State Patrol is investigating a tragic and fatal accident that allegedly happened Saturday night, according to recent news articles.
A 20-year-old woman from Des Moines had her life allegedly taken after an unfortunate one-vehicle crash. The accident happened on Interstate 5 sometime around 9 p.m. just north of SR-518, according to the authorities.
Official reports from local officers and the Washington State Patrol state that the woman was driving a 2004 Montero vehicle when she missed her exit. The moment she tried to make a quick turn to the right, the car hit a curb. The news claimed that the vehicle rolled over and allegedly projected the woman out of the car. She was sadly pronounced dead by the WSP upon the authorities arrival. Other three passengers, two 17-year-olds and one 16 year-old were injured and taken immediately to the hospital.
There are no more details regarding the health state of the teenagers who were involved in this accident. The Washington State Patrol claims none of them was wearing a seatbelt.
As a Tacoma personal injury lawyer I sincerely offer my deepest condolences to the family of the woman who tragically lost her life as a result of this accident. Personal injury lawyers in Washington hope that similar accidents will be avoided and urge all readers to always fasten their seat belts, regardless of the distance you will be traveling.
According to the local news, a Kirkland 47-year-old woman was involved in an accident on Interstate 405. The Washington State Patrol has reported officially that the accident happened sometime Sunday night. Authorities claim that the northbound lane of the I-405 in Bellevue was closed during many hours after the accident.
The woman was allegedly driving her Toyota Camry when something caused her to lose control of the wheel, which caused the vehicle to hit a tanker truck. The authorities say that the trailer rolled down making the rig slide across the interstate.
The Washington State Patrol reports that the accident caused the truck to spill something like 3,400 gallons of gasoline. According to the official statement from the Department of Ecology and many other different sources, the oil allegedly reached the drainage system.
The reports say that both drivers had their seatbelts fastened and that the authorities are investigating the real causes of the accident. Up to this point it is still unknown if the oil has reached Lake Washington.
As a Bellevue car accident attorney I hope that both drivers will recover quickly and that the authorities will work hard to keep our stream from being polluted by the oil spill.
Any car accident related to the distracted driving of others should be taken to a personal injury lawyer in your area right away.

During the winter, icy roads can represent a major threat to drivers who are not entirely familiar with the difficulties of a slippery road.

Hopefully, the electricity company and the authorities will do a great job keeping the area safe and well flagged so no one will suffer an accident by not being aware of the road conditions.

According to very recent news, the very two right lanes of Interstate 5 where it interchanges with Interstate 405 are completely blocked because of a collision.
The still very inconclusive reports from the Washington State Patrol say that this was a one-vehicle accident involving a semi-truck.
The driver allegedly has serious injuries although nobody can really say it with certainty. Washington State Department of Transportation has released the footage of the crash and according to what’s been seen, the truck seems to have tried to stop under the overpass without much success.
There are many emergency vehicles stopped by the crash area and according to the last official reports, the conditions for the accident to have happened are not yet known. Authorities are trying to keep the traffic going around the accident scene.
As an Olympia personal injury lawyer I sincerely hope that the truck driver will be able to fully recover in a speedy and hassle free way. I also urge the authorities to work on the investigations that will finally demonstrate what was behind this crash so people can learn from the dangers of the road.

News says that according to recent data taken from truck inspection conducted by the Washington State Patrol, some of the riskiest trucks on Washington roads keep rolling out of the Port of Seattle every single day. The large number of trucks combined with the lack of infrastructure makes it hard for authorities to inspect every single vehicle that otherwise wouldn’t be able to leave the port without being thoroughly examined.
The Seattle Department of Transportation was given the task of making sure more than 4,000 trucks that serve Seattle on a daily basis would take safety inspections seriously. The Washington State Patrol officers noticed right away that they were overwhelmed and weren’t sure if they would be able to make it. According to officers the inspections lacked in quality. Because they had to rush through each truck driver, there were moments when they would even say they had inspected a certain vehicle without actually doing so.
These unsafe trucks carry shipping containers from the port all around Harbor Island. Not only trucks and truck drivers suffer from the lack of inspection, so does the product they’re carrying and distributing.
As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I urge the authorities to take matters into their hands and turn the tables on this puzzling inspection issue Washington State has with trucks. Whenever you feel like you need a personal injury lawyer to respond to your every doubt regarding a possible case, don’t hesitate. The faster you call the better.
Reports from the Washington State Patrol claim that sometime after 7 a.m. on Monday, there was a one-vehicle accident on State Route 164 that sadly claimed the life of one man while leaving another man injured. News sources didn’t disclose how severe were the injuries the man sustained.
The news reports that a Bonney Lake resident, who was 26 years old at the time of the crash, was driving eastbound on SR 164. Authorities say that the driver was under the influence, which might have caused his sudden crossing to the westbound lanes that led his vehicle to leave the road and hit multiple trees.
The passenger in the car, a 27-year-old man from Kirkland was injured by the time the Washington State Patrol arrived; he was taken to the hospital immediately. According to official reports, the driver who was tragically killed was not wearing his seat belt while the passenger was.
As a Kirkland car accident lawyer, I hope that the passenger who was involved in this fatal accident may recover quickly and without any major hassles. He must know that at this time he should have the assistance of a personal injury lawyer throughout the process.
