Various news outlets have reported that a 21-year-old woman from Ellensburg was involved in a collision on U.S. Highway 97 and fortunately was left uninjured.
The authorities claimed that the accident happened just four miles south of Leavenworth some time during Sunday afternoon. The collision occurred when a vehicle tried to make a left turn but failed to first yield to the other car carrying the 21-year-old who was sitting at the passenger seat.
The reports from the Washington State Patrol show that the 84-year-old man driving the car that caused the accident was from Pehshastin. He was allegedly injured and taken to the Hospital after the accident.
Authorities say that all drivers and passengers were wearing their seatbelts.
I, a Bellevue car accident lawyer hope that the driver who was injured will have a steadfast recovery. Hopefully this accident will serve as an example to all drivers who sometimes find themselves not paying enough attention to the road they’re traveling on.
Even familiar streets from quiet neighborhoods can pose threats if you’re not attentive to the traffic surrounding you. Whenever you’re involved in an accident that was caused by the recklessness of other drivers, contact a personal injury lawyer in your area.
