Man Allegedly Loses His Life in A Possible DUI Accident

Reports from the Washington State Patrol claim that sometime after 7 a.m. on Monday, there was a one-vehicle accident on State Route 164 that sadly claimed the life of one man while leaving another man injured. News sources didn’t disclose how severe were the injuries the man sustained.

The news reports that a Bonney Lake resident, who was 26 years old at the time of the crash, was driving eastbound on SR 164. Authorities say that the driver was under the influence, which might have caused his sudden crossing to the westbound lanes that led his vehicle to leave the road and hit multiple trees.

The passenger in the car, a 27-year-old man from Kirkland was injured by the time the Washington State Patrol arrived; he was taken to the hospital immediately. According to official reports, the driver who was tragically killed was not wearing his seat belt while the passenger was.

As a Kirkland car accident lawyer, I hope that the passenger who was involved in this fatal accident may recover quickly and without any major hassles. He must know that at this time he should have the assistance of a personal injury lawyer throughout the process.
