A 23-year-old Seattle man was injured in a car accident on Whidbey Island around 5:40 pm on Friday Evening.
According to a report in the Everett Herald Net, the man was a passenger in a Dodge Caravan that hit a Jeep Cherokee that was making a left hand turn.
Washington State Troopers are investigating the accident to determine if any charges should be made. Vehicle Code RCW 46.61.185 places the burden for safety on the driver turning left. It says that a driver turning left must yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction or so close as to constitute a hazard.
