Rush Hour Crash on Renton S-Curves | Car Accident Attorney

Car Crash Stats: The age group with the highest percentage of drunk drivers involved in fatal car crashes was 25-34. This age group accounted for 26% of the fatal accidents.  In 2007, 57% of the fatal alcohol-related car crashes occurred on the weekends.

Renton, Washington’s infamous S-curves on Interstate 405 are known throughout the metro Seattle area as one of the most accident prone sections of roadway in the entire state of Washington.  Not only does the curving highway cause long commutes but the high number of motor vehicle accidents contributes heavily to long drive times for I-405 commuters. 

Rear-end accidents are common.  Many business commuters are distracted by their cell phones, reading email messages on their phone, and attempting to send text messages while driving.  Distracted driving is an accident waiting to happen.

On-ramps, off-ramps interchanges, and traffic moving in and out of high occupancy vehicle lanes at high speeds are another common source of accidents.
