As a Seattle wrongful death attorney, I have seen many horrific pedestrian accidents in Washington State. Unfortunately, thousands are killed in traffic accidents each year.
In Seattle, a 29-year-old man died after he was struck by three vehicles On Interstate 5. Officials believe the man was trying to commit suicide.
The incident occurred at about 2:30 a.m. on the Lake Washington Ship Canal Bridge.
The State Patrol says the man aggressively walked in front of moving vehicle in the southbound lanes of the freeway. The man did the same thing only two days earlier when he walked into traffic. The man was hit and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
According to King 5 News, the man later told police he was trying to kill himself.
The area was investigated for several hours.
We are very sorry to learn of this tragic incident. We offer our condolences to the victim’s friends and family.
