Reports from the Washington State Patrol and local news say that a 63-year-old man from Amboy was involved in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 205 last Thursday morning. The man was injured and taken to the hospital right after the alleged crash.
He was riding his 2005 Honda motorcycle on I-205 sometime after 10:30 a.m. when he reached south from state Highway 500. Because the traffic was slow he had to promptly slow his vehicle down but the maneuver was unsuccessful.
He fell on the Interstate and according to the reports from the Washington State Patrol, the man suffered a head injury.
A spokesperson for the authorities said that he sustains a satisfactory condition and that he was later cited and then ticketed for following too close to traffic.
As a personal injury lawyer I urge all readers to never follow too close on a highway. Many circumstances can force the traffic to stop abruptly, we should be always alert so preventable accidents won’t cause harm to anybody sharing the road with us.
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.
