A man driving a Van along a rural Skagit County highway struck and killed another driver after crossing into the opposing lane Monday morning.
The white Ford Ecoline van was traveling northbound on Alger Cain Lake Road just before 1 am when it struck the deceased drivers blue Mazda Protege head on.
The 62-year-old driver of the Mazda was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash while the 31-year-old driver of the van was found to be uninjured but believed to be under the influence.
Wrongful Death and DUI Victims
At this time we do not have reports of exactly what substances the driver of the Ecoline van was under the influence of as charges are pending on the driver.
Assuming he is found to be under the influence the family members of the deceased would have a solid case for a wrongful death claim against the other driver.
Drunk Driving in Wrongful Death cases can serve as a shortcut to prove liability but proving the value of a case can often be a lengthy and complex process even if liability is not disputed.
The process of proving the value of a drunk driving wrongful death case can require expert representation to ensure the victims family members recover the full value of the case.
