A 55-year-old man who was taking a prospective buyer out for a test drive in his Nissan 300ZX was killed and the potential buyer was critically injured in a Lynnwood single-car accident on Wednesday night.
The Seattle Times reports that the two men took the car out for a test drive around 5pm and the driver was apparently speeding on 2100 block of Cypress Way when he lost control of the vehicle, went into a ditch and hit a tree.
Approximately 20 percent of car accident deaths occur when a vehicle leaves the road and hits a fixed object such as a tree, utility pole or traffic barrier. Approximately 50% of these accidents occur at night and often alcohol is a contributing factor. In 2009, 7,800 people were killed in fixed object crashes.
