According to various news articles, a couple that was allegedly involved in a one-car rollover accident was taken to the hospital right after authorities arrived at the scene.
The Washington State Patrol claims that snowy conditions combined with speeding were the two main factors behind the accident. According to the reports released from the authorities, a 59-year-old man from Umatilla was driving east on I-82 sometime after 5 p.m. on Wednesday night when he lost absolute control of his vehicle.
The truck allegedly rolled several times before landing on its top. The vehicle the couple was in was totaled and both driver and passenger were taken to the hospital. Details regarding the couple’s health condition are not yet known but the authorities are still investigating the road and the conditions surrounding the accident.
As a Bellevue car accident lawyer I sincerely hope that the couple is doing fine after this unfortunate occurring. Let this serve as an example of how speeding and extreme weather conditions do not go well together. Sometimes, difficult weather conditions are not the only factors that cause an accident, negligence and distracted driving could also end up being deadly.
Whenever you’re injured in an accident that was not your fault, contact a personal injury lawyer right away.
