As a Seattle motorcycle accident attorney, I’m saddened to hear about this crash. I hope that the two people injured in this collision make a full and speedy recovery. I urge drivers to always pay attention to other drivers around them, including motorcycles, which may be harder to see, to potentially avoid accidents like this.
