It’s upsetting and tragic, but many accidents end up being deadly. Unfortunately, these accidents happen all too often, especially here in the Evergreen state. It’s our goal as a personal law firm to help our clients learn about these accidents so they may also learn how to avoid them. Only by having a better understanding of how these occurrences take place is that drivers will also find a way to go around the risks and act accordingly.
The latest deadly accident to have happened in Washington took place this Sunday morning.
According to the Washington State Patrol, an SUV driven by an older man was traveling the opposite way of a vehicle carrying a woman. A second car followed her carrying her husband and their infant child. All of a sudden, the SUV crossed the center line, traveling into the path of the two vehicles. While the female driver’s car sideswiped the SUV, her husband’s car collided with the SUV head-on.
The father and infant were declared dead at the scene while the child’s mother was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
The SUV driver was critically injured.
While the infant was properly restrained in her infant car seat, she did not survive the collision.
