Washington Auto Accident Causes Granite Spill on Highway

A woman was injured after she crashed into a van hauling a trailer with granite slabs on Highway 305, the Kitsap Sun reports. The woman was traveling north on the highway in a Toyota Camry. Those who saw the incident told officials that the woman was veering in the lanes. Apparently, she first veered right and then to the left of the van before smashing into the van’s trailer. The car struck the van on the rear of the driver’s side. The impact from the collision knocked the trailer loose, causing the trailer’s tires to blow out. The granite slabs spilled and broke on the highway. The woman was transported to a Seattle hospital. Police are investigating this crash.

Such accidents are extremely dangerous because debris spilled on the highway could cause additional accidents and possible injuries. In such cases, it is very important to pinpoint the cause of the accident. It is possible here, that a mechanical problem with the Toyota, or a product defect caused the driver to veer and drive erratically in the first place. In any auto accident where malfunctions or auto product defects are suspected, it is critical that the vehicle be preserved in its current state unaltered, so it can be examined by an accident reconstruction expert carefully, for defects and other problems.
