As a Seattle head-on collision lawyer, I am against aggressive driving behaviors that put other drivers on the road at risk of dangerous accidents. According to KOMO News, a two vehicle collision resulted in the death of one young driver and injured the other driver. The accident occurred in the evening near Buckley on State Route 410 near 254th Avenue. A Jeep SUV crashed head-on into a truck that was going the opposite direction after the Jeep crossed the center line in order to pass several cars. The attempt at passing the cars proved tragic for the driver of the Jeep. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Even though road conditions have been cold and icy, weather was not believed to have been a factor in this incident.
Speeding and weaving in and out of traffic are dangerous driving behaviors that often lead to tragic traffic collisions. Head-on collisions are extremely dangerous and are often due to a vehicle crossing over the center double line or median going directly into the path of on-coming traffic. Although this accident occurred in Buckley, head-on collisions can happen on local streets of Seattle as well, so it is important to always drive carefully.
Auto accidents are devastating accidents that often leave families feeling overwhelmed figuring out what to do next. The death of a loved one or even serious personal injuries due to dangerous car accidents are devastating and life changing events and can lead to various emotional stress.
