Four people were hospitalized with injuries from a Washington car accident on a collision on Highway 99, The Seattle Times reports. A collision between two cars sent one car off the roadway and into adjacent railroad tracks. Another car rolled over and landed on its roof. The four victims were transported to a Seattle hospital for treatment of their injuries. The extent of their injuries is not known. Drugs or alcohol were not involved in the accident. Seattle police are still investigating the cause of the accident.
In auto accident cases where two or more vehicles are involved, one of the most important questions to ask is, “Who was at fault for the accident?” If the collision occurred at an intersection, it is possible that one of the drivers failed to yield right-of-way at the intersection or ran a red light or stop sign. Seattle car accident lawyers often see first-hand how speed, driving recklessly or distracted driving may be common reasons for collisions taking place.
