Several news sources across the state have revealed that a fiery accident occurred on Highway 3 yesterday morning.
According to an official report from the Washington State Patrol, the accident happened when a Fed Ex truck and a BMW carrying two small children collided about a mile south of Gorst. A 28-year-old woman from Port Orchard was going southbound on Highway 3 around 8:40 a.m. when her vehicle slipped on an icy patch of the road and hit the guardrail. The vehicle bounced after the impact and was thrown back into traffic right into the path of a Fed Ex truck.
Witnesses claim several people came to the rescue of the woman and her two children just before the vehicle was engulfed in flames. Nobody was injured.
As a personal injury lawyer Bellevue, I’m very happy this accident resulted in no injuries. I sincerely wish the best to this mother and her young children. As a concerned personal injury lawyer in Washington I also encourage motorists to remember they must be especially attentive whenever they’re driving on roads that may be icy and slick.
I would like to remind readers that if you or a loved one is ever injured as a result of an accident caused by a distracted driver, you might wish to contact a personal injury lawyer near you to assess your case.
