A 3-car accident during the morning commute hour injured 2 people from Bothell on Thursday morning around 6:40am.
According to the Everett Herald, a Honda driven by a 46-year-old Bothell man was sideswiped as the man was driving eastbound on Highway 524. The Honda then crossed the centerline and struck a Chevrolet Express van driven by another man from Bothell head-on.
The driver of the Honda was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center for treatment of undisclosed injuries. The driver of the car that initially hit the Honda, a Bothell woman, was taken to Swedish Edmonds hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
Because of the laws of Physics, head-on car collisions can result in the most serious injuries. Luckily in this case, the driver of the van was not injured.
The cause of the accident remains under investigation by The Washington State Patrol. However, if news accounts of the incident are accurate, the driver of the vehicle that sideswiped the Honda is likely to be partially to fully responsible for causing this accident, and the subsequent injuries that resulted. In situations like this one, the driver may be financially liable for the victims’ injuries, including medical expenses, lost earnings, pain and suffering, and other related damages. While the cause of the accident is still under investigation, it would be advisable for the injured victims to speak to an experienced and personal injury attorney about the crash.
