Drivers are often tired, not paying attention, driving quickly in order to get home faster, or distracted during busy rush hour times of the day. As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I know how taxing the regular commute home can be after a long day at work. According to KOMO News, two people were killed during the Monday evening commute in a devastating head on collision. The accident occurred in the northbound lanes of Highway 167 and 31st Avenue around 4:45p.m. Both drivers involved were pronounced dead at the scene. Police reports say that one vehicle swerved over the center line into oncoming traffic before slamming into the other car. The accident is still being investigated by police as to the initial cause but all our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims.
Speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, driving while fatigued and driving while intoxicated are all dangerous driving behaviors that often lead to tragic traffic collisions. Head on collisions are especially dangerous due to the force and impact placed on the vehicles and as a result all the passengers of the vehicle. These types of traffic accidents often lead to serious to fatal injuries.
