Big Rig Strikes MAX Train, Injuring 8 in Hillsboro

Media sources reported that eight people suffered moderate and minor injuries in an accident involving a big rig and MAX light rail train in Hillsboro, Oregon Monday afternoon.

According to reports from the Hillsboro Police Department and Tri-Met investigators, the accident occurred shortly after noon on Monday when a big rig trailer collided with an eastbound MAX light rail train, blocking the intersection of Southeast 10th Street and Washington Street. When crews from Hillsboro Fire and Rescue arrived on the scene, they discovered the front windshield of the light rail train smashed in and moderate damage done to the tractor portion of the big rig.

Rescue crews immediately began triaging the injured at the scene and found that the driver of the big rig and seven passengers onboard the train were in need of treatment for varying injuries. The big rig driver and five MAX passengers were taken to several local hospitals for treatment. A seventh train passenger was taken via private vehicle to a hospital while the eighth passenger refused medical treatment at the scene.

Hillsboro Police officials and Tri-Met investigators are continuing their investigation into the cause of the accident by interviewing both drivers and checking the operations of the signaling system at the intersection. As of yet, no statement has been made as to whether any citations may be issued.

As a Vancouver personal injury lawyer, I’m greatly relieved to hear that no one was more seriously injured in this potentially deadly accident. If you’ve suffered injury as the result of an accident that was caused by the negligence of another, contact a personal injury lawyer in your city to learn more about your rights as they pertain to the matter.

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.

Camas Man Injured in Single-Vehicle Crash on Hwy-14

Media outlets reported that a 19-year-old Camas man was moderately injured in a single-vehicle accident on state Highway 14 Sunday evening.

According to a report from the Washington State Patrol, the 19-year-old driver was traveling eastbound on state Highway 14 when the accident occurred at roughly 6pm. The Washington State Patrol alleged that the man fell asleep at the wheel, causing his 202 Hyundai Accent to veer off of the roadway. The vehicle ran off the right side of the road and continued on through underbrush, until ultimately colliding head-on with a tree. No other vehicles are suspected as being involved with this accident.

The 19-year-old driver sustained moderate injuries in the accident, including two broken femurs and a laceration to his head. The man was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center for the treatment of his injuries. As of Monday morning, he was listed in satisfactory condition by hospital staff.

Authorities have not stated whether they believe drugs or alcohol played contributing roles in the accident or whether any citations may be issued.

As an Olympia car accident attorney, I’m relieved that no one was more seriously injured, or killed, in what could have been a potentially deadly accident. I wish this man a speedy recovery from his injuries so that he may more quickly put this incident behind him. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you think was the result of another driver’s negligent actions, it may be in your interests to speak with a car accident lawyer in your area.

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.

One Man Hospitalized After SR-500 Multiple Car Pileup

News sources reported that a 40-year-old Portland man sustained moderate injuries in a four-vehicle pileup accident near Vancouver Wednesday afternoon.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident occurred just before 4:45pm on State Road 500 as the vehicles approached Northeast Stapleton Road. Slow traffic caused three vehicles to slow to a stop. However, the fourth vehicle, driven by the 40-year-old Portland man, was unable to stop in time to avoid an accident, causing a chain reaction that affected the three vehicles in front of him.

The 40-year-old man was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver for the treatment of injuries to his neck and back that he sustained during the crash. He was listed in satisfactory condition by hospital staff as of Wednesday night. Two of the other drivers, operating the two vehicles sandwiched in the middle, a 58-year-old Battleground woman and a 33-year-old Vancouver woman, sustained injury during the crash, but were not taken to the hospital for treatment. The driver of the front vehicle, an 18-year-old Vancouver woman, escaped the accident unscathed. The Washington State Patrol stated that all drivers were wearing their seatbelts during the accident, and has since cited the 40-year-old Portland man for following another vehicle too closely.

As a Vancouver car accident lawyer, I’ve seen similar accidents in the past and am relieved to learn that no one was more seriously injured. I wish all the occupants involved a quick recovery from their injuries so that they may put this event behind them. If you’ve been injured in an accident that you believe was the direct result of another driver’s negligent actions, it may be in your best interests to speak with a car accident lawyer in your area.

Skamania Highway 14 Accident Injures 1

Media outlets reported that a 26-year-old Portland man sustained moderate injuries in a car accident on Highway 14 in Skamania County Wednesday night.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident happened at approximately 7:30pm in Skamania County roughly 2 miles west of North Bonneville. The man was traveling on Highway 14 when he approached a curve and allegedly lost control of his vehicle for unknown reasons; however troopers believe the man was driving at excessive speeds for the road conditions.  The 26-year-old’s 2003 Suzuki then struck a guardrail and skidded from the roadway. Debris from the accident covered the roadway and was struck by a Ford pickup truck driven by a Battle Ground man, who was not injured in the incident.

The Portland man was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver for the treatment of lacerations and abrasions to his leg, hip and back he sustained during the crash. As of Thursday morning, he was listed in satisfactory condition by hospital staff.

As an Olympia car accident attorney, I’m relieved to hear that no one was more seriously injured in this potentially deadly accident. I wish the victim a speedy recovery from his injuries so that he may more quickly put this event behind him.
