According to the local news, a 50-year-old woman who was killed after being involved in a head-on collision was unfortunately killed. The Washington State Patrol released a statement claiming that the woman was identified after her body was retrieved from the accident scene on Highway 305 last Friday.
The official reports show that the accident happened some time around 6 in the afternoon just in front of the Cedar Glen RV Park. The investigators working on this case think that the driver responsible for the crash was driving while intoxicated. The 46-year-old woman from Poulsbo was driving northbound when suddenly she veered into the opposite lane and collided head-on against the 1993 Saturn carrying the victim. Officials say she wasn’t wearing her seat belt.
The driver that was hit was severely injured and was rushed to the Hospital by a helicopter along with the alleged drunken driver.
Authorities blocked the roadway for four hours so the accident scene could be cleared up.
As an Olympia car accident lawyer I extend my most profound condolences to the family of the woman who tragically lost her life because of this accident. The thoughts and hearts of all personal injury lawyers are with them.
Fortunately, this accident will serve as an alert to all motorists who think they can get away with driving under the influence. Don’t be a victim of a drunken driver, contact a proficient lawyer as soon as needed.
