Drunken Driver Hits Stopped Vehicle, Causes Tragic Accident

Local news sources have been reporting that an alarmingly disturbing accident sadly claimed the life of an infant in Vancouver, Washington.

Reports from the Washington State Patrol show that a man from Portland was allegedly arrested after being accused of driving under the influence and causing an accident that led to the death of a 3-month-old baby.

Statements from prosecutors show that the baby’s parents, a 23 year-old and a 21 year-old were coming back from a camping trip in the Puget Sound area, while they were driving on Interstate 5 they had to stop because of a flat tire.

At the same moment an intoxicated 26 year-old driver lost total control of his vehicle and hit the stopped car on the side of the road. The infant allegedly didn’t resist the wounds and unfortunately died in the scene of the accident.

Personal injury lawyers wish the infant’s family will be able find the support they need during this terribly difficult moment of their lives. Our hearts and kind thoughts are with them.

As a Vancouver car accident attorney I offer my sincere condolences to the parents of the infant tragically lost in an accident that should have never happened. Driving while intoxicated is against the law and the consequences of this act are highly fatal.
