Less than a month after an early morning accident claimed the life of a 19-year-old woman and critically injured two children, another person died Tuesday morning on the same stretch of road.
An unidentified 60-year-old man driving a passenger car died after colliding with a semi traveling the opposite direction around a curve, nearly sending the large vehicle into a creek more than 30 feet below.
The driver of the semi only suffered minor injuries but were it not for a bank of trees stopping his truck, could have found himself in a far more perilous situation.
Unsafe Road Conditions
According to a state trooper on the scene this stretch of road is notorious for accidents like this, rarely seeing simple things like a fender bender or similar smaller scale accidents. The trooper attributes this trend to the 2-lane road having blind corners, and prone to fog and wet roadways.
Dangerous Roads can contribute to accidents leaving individuals seriously injured or even deceased.
It takes a thorough investigation after any serious accident to determine exact causes and liability so that any individuals or entities truly at fault for the crash are fully held accountable and victims in these cases are made whole.
In cases like this, investigations showing a history of similar collisions at road locations combined with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) being aware of potential design or other issues while not addressing them could lead to the case being brought against WSDOT.
