According to the local news and reports from the Washington State Patrol, two people had to be taken to a Hospital Wednesday after a two-vehicle collision on State Route 821.
The accident happened just north of Selah and involved speeding and snowy conditions, two things that allegedly don’t go well together. A Washington State Patrol officer said that a 55-year-old man from Seattle was going northbound on the road when he allegedly lost control of the vehicle. At the time, a car driven by a 54-year-old woman from Ellensburg was driving southbound when the car that was out of control struck her.
According to official reports, it’s not yet known how both drivers are feeling but the Washington State Patrol claimed they were both wearing their seat belts. No drugs or alcohol were found in the driver’s blood.
As a Seattle car accident lawyer I understand that there may have been many different factors that could have caused this crash but I still urge all readers to be extremely careful while driving under difficult weather conditions.
Whenever you’re injured by the carelessness of another driver, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area as fast as possible.
