According to reports released by the Washington State Patrol, a collision involving seven people late Saturday allegedly claimed the life of one.
The man, a 50 year-old from Woodburn, Oregon was a passenger in the Mazda driven by a 23-year-old. The accident happened, according to the Washington State Patrol, after the vehicle crossed the center line colliding against an Audi driven by another 23-year-old.
News sources say that the accident happened sometime after 11 p.m. and tests were run to determine if drugs or alcohol had anything to do with the accident. An officer said that unfortunately that was allegedly the case.
One of the passengers involved in the head-on collision is a 3-year old boy.
As an Everett personal injury lawyer I believe that we all should be extremely careful not to be tempted to drive while intoxicated. It’s against the law and it can always result in a fatal accident.
I sincerely wish the best to the family of the man who passed away. Personal injury lawyers are unfortunately very familiar with similar fatal accidents. The pain and suffering are not worth the drinking and driving, safety should always be our priority.
