Two people are dead after an accident on I-90 near Moses lake involving an elderly driver traveling west in the eastbound lanes.
Both the wrong-way driver who was in his 80's and a 59-year-old auburn man were pronounced dead at the scene Monday afternoon.
First responders reported that the wrong way driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Investigators are continuing to work on how the elderly driver began traveling the wrong way on the freeway.
Legal Rights For Wrong Way Accident Victims.
Wrong-way drivers are incredibly dangerous on our roads, often happening on freeways, these accidents involve high rates of speed, devastating impacts and little to no time for a driver to react.
Wrongful death accidents involving a wrong way driver make proving liability potentially more straight forward than in other accidents types, however family members who lost a loved one in any kind of an accident should still begin to gather information like the police report to build their claim as soon as possible.
The difference between a properly handled wrongful death claim and a mishandled one no matter how straight forward the liability in the case may be could be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars or more for a family who lost a loved one.
