Reports from the Washington State Patrol show that a man from Yakima was driving his 2000 Chevrolet Blazer north on State Route 243, trying to pass a vehicle when he realized it would be impossible. When he tried to pull back, the driver lost absolute control of his vehicle. That’s when the blazer rolled many times, according to the news.
The driver had a passenger in the car. According to the authorities and an officer from the Washington State Patrol, the 21-year-old from Yakima wasn’t just trying to pass another vehicle, he was doing so on a double yellow line road.
Although the news weren’t clear regarding the state of their health, both driver and passenger were taken to the hospital. The Washington State Patrol officials have stated that the man will face charges of reckless driving.
At this moment in this case, the passenger could be assisted by personal injury lawyers. It’s important to never take too long to contact your personal injury lawyer when involved in an accident that was caused by someone else other than you.
As a Bellevue Car Accident Lawyer I hope that accidents similar to this can be avoided with a good road safety education and effortless enforcement from the authorities.
