According to recent local news, a man from Selah allegedly lost his life while driving his semi-tractor. The 57-year-old man was going south on State Route 221 when the vehicle crossed the very center line, which led to the collision between his vehicle and another semi-truck that was driving north.
The 57-year-old man allegedly was found pronounced dead at the Hospital while the other driver only suffered a few injuries without any serious consequences. According to officials, an extensive investigation must be held so the causes of the accident may be known. Because of the severe crash, the highway was closed but the authorities offered detours to the traffic.
At this moment, it is not known if drugs or alcohol played any role in this accident.
As a Wenatchee car accident attorney, I hope that authorities will have answers regarding the causes of this accident soon enough.
