As an Olympia car accident lawyer, I’m deeply saddened by the news of this tragic accident. I’ve seen the effects of similar accidents on the family and friends left behind in my time as a car accident lawyer and know that a strong support system is essential during this time. I pray that they have such a support system while they cope with their loss. My heartfelt condolences go out to them at this time.
