Man Killed After Accident in Sunnyside, Driver Fled The Scene

Several news sources have reported an accident involving a car wreck in Sunnyside. Authorities claim the driver who caused the crash fled the scene.

According to the news, a 20-year-old passenger was ejected and killed after the driver lost control of his vehicle. The car drifted off the road and over-corrected causing the vehicle to roll. According to the authorities the driver left the scene just after the accident. The Washington State Patrol reports show that his identity and whereabouts are still unknown.

The remaining passengers were taken to the hospital as soon as the authorities arrived at the scene. Officials say that speed is believed to be the cause behind the wreck and that if you have any information on this accident or the suspect, you may contact the authorities.

As a Seattle car accident lawyer I’m terribly sorry to hear about this tragic occurrence. My heart goes out to the victim’s family and loved ones; hopefully they are receiving the support they need in this difficult time.

Whenever you’re the victim of an accident that was induced by the recklessness of others, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area to assist you with your case.

Accident Involving Two Bicycles and a Vehicle Claims the Lives of Two

According to recent news, two young men were fatally hit while riding their bicycles at nighttime, a third one was also hit but survived and allegedly sent to the hospital with injuries.

Reports from the Department of Public Safety have showed that the young men were wearing helmets and had the bicycle lights on. They were riding their bikes sometime after 7 p.m. when a motorist struck them while trying to pass another vehicle on a rural road.

The 32-year-old driver allegedly fled the scene but later came to his senses and turned himself in. According to the article, the 21-year-old unfortunately passed away after being rushed to the hospital while the 20-year-old rider died at the scene of the accident. The third cyclist, a 19-year-old, was released after being treated for minor injuries.

As a Seattle personal injury attorney, I’m deeply saddened by this tragic news. Bicycle and road safety are major priorities for my fellow personal injury lawyers and me. My heart is with the young men’s families.

Don’t hesitate to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer when you were the victim of a distracted driver. Keeping the road safe for others and yourself is everybody’s duty. Stay alert while driving.

Vehicle Strikes Deer on I-5 near Lacey

News agencies reported that a 55-year-old Lacey woman sustained minor injuries after striking a three-point buck on Interstate 5 Tuesday morning.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident occurred at approximately 9:40am as the 55-year-old woman was traveling southbound on Interstate 5. As her 2001 Hyundai passed the Sleater-Kinney Road exit, the three-point buck bounded across all of the northbound traffic lanes of Interstate 5 and leapt over the jersey barrier in to the path of her vehicle. Unable to avoid a collision, the woman struck the deer. The animal hit her windshield, flipped over the vehicle and went through the back window, finally coming to rest in the trunk of the Hyundai. The woman was able to safely steer her vehicle to the right shoulder of the interstate with the deer still in the trunk.

Troopers responded to the scene a few minutes after the incident and found that the animal had been killed in the accident and remained in the woman’s trunk. Animal control units removed the animal from the car and authorities had the vehicle towed from the scene. The woman was reported to have suffered minor abrasions in the incident, but was otherwise unscathed.

A statement from a WSP official said, “The 55-year-old driver was extremely lucky to walk away with only minor abrasions.”

As an Everett car accident attorney, I’m relieved to learn that this woman was not seriously injured in this potentially deadly situation. I encourage all drivers to practice safe driving habits, including extreme diligence in areas of wildlife crossing, to increase theirs and others chances of staying safe on our roadways. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the fault of another, contact a car accident lawyer in your city to learn more about your rights as they pertain to the matter.

I-5 Car Accident Kills Seattle Man

News sources reported that a 40-year-old Seattle man was killed in a car accident on Interstate 5 Sunday morning.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident occurred just after midnight Sunday morning in the southbound traffic lanes of Interstate 5, underneath the 85th Street overpass. A brief investigation revealed that the 40-year-old driver was traveling southbound on Interstate 5 in his 2000 Honda Civic when he exited at 85th Street. After doing so, his vehicle struck the guardrail on the 85th Street overpass for unknown reasons. The vehicle crashed through the rail, continuing through multiple other objects before ultimately coming to rest on its roof in the southbound traffic lanes of I-5. Troopers responded to the scene at 12:10am Sunday and pronounced the driver dead at the scene from injuries sustained during the crash.

The cause of this accident is still being investigated by the Washington State Patrol. At this time, it is still unknown as to whether drugs or alcohol played contributing roles in this accident.

As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I’m deeply saddened to learn of this tragic loss of life. In my years as a car accident lawyer, I’ve seen similar accidents and know the devastating effects they can have on the family and friends left behind. My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to them at this time.

Car Accidents –Do You Need To Call The Police To The Scene?

In a moment of stress and panic, many people may ask, “Should I be calling the police to the scene of an accident?” The answer to this is a resounding ‘Yes’ from media outlets. A large number of reasons exist in these situations where calling the police to the scene of an accident, no matter how minor the damage or impact is, would be beneficial to all parties involved.

There are many people that would prefer not call police to the scene. Typical reasons behind this way of thinking include that people are late to an appointment and they want to get over this as quickly as possible. For the most part, people believe that getting police involved in such a scenario is going to result in an extended delay. However, this is not true at all. It typically only takes law enforcement officials a few minutes to safely make it to the scene of an accident. Furthermore, people find it troublesome and inconvenient to call police for a minor collision.

The point is that it is extremely imperative for all of us to call the police to the accident scene you happen to be a part of. The resolution does not take much of a time, and the advantages are far outweighed as compared to the inconveniences. Police officials will record statements and take inventory of all damage, both personal and property, and their records will be highly valued should the matter need to be resolved legally.

As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I know firsthand the benefits of having a law enforcement official record data at the scene of an accident. I urge all motorists to always call the police, no matter how minor the accident in order to protect their interests later on. If you’ve been injured in an accident that resulted from the negligent actions of another, contact a car accident lawyer in your city.
