Many local news outlets in Washington State have announced the unfortunate death of a 74-year-old man in a wheelchair during the storm that hit the state Tuesday night.
According to the articles, the victim was outside watching the wind when an unexpected 60-foot tree fell on the front porch of his house. The disconsolate accident occurred in Central Park on the State’s coast.
According to the local authorities, the man struck by the falling tree was with his brother who was also in a wheelchair but inside the house they shared when the accident took place. The brother immediately called for help after the incident and was found unharmed by the authorities.
The Washington State Patrol has released information regarding other accidents that happened during the gusty winds that hit Washington on Tuesday. The stormy weather definitely had a strong impact on the routine of Washington residents.
I, an Everett personal injury attorney offer my deepest and sincerest condolences to the man who lost his brother after the brutal storm that desolated the Washington coast.
Hopefully, residents will stay away from risky areas during future brusque changes in the weather, this is a sincere wish from the personal injury lawyers in Seattle.
