According to local news, two people were rushed to the Hospital after allegedly being involved in a multi-car crash. The Washington State Patrol has reported that the accident happened sometime this morning just five miles west of Cle Elum.
A 48-year-old man from Bellevue was going east on Interstate 90 when he dozed off, falling asleep at the wheel. That’s when the Nissan Sentra he was driving crossed the road and hit a semi-truck that was driving west. The Setran allegedly broke in two pieces at the time of the crash.
Reports from the Washington State Patrol claim that half of the vehicle rested against a guard rail on the right shoulder while the other ended up at the left shoulder. The passenger in the Sentra was also injured while, according to reports, a third car was struck by debris from the crashed car. The two motorists that had their vehicles hit by the alleged drowsy driver were not injured according to official reports.
The Washington State Patrol is still investigating the accident, no more details were disclosed about the nature of the crash or if there was any other factor that might have caused the collision.
As a Seattle motorcycle accident lawyer I wish a steady and speedy recovery to the two men who were allegedly injured after this sad accident. Personal injury lawyers will tell you that accidents caused by drowsy drivers can be fatal. Whenever you have been injured in a car accident provoked by another driver, contact a car accident attorney you can trust.
