As a Vancouver personal injury lawyer, I’m terribly heartbroken after I heard about a fatal accident that has happened recently. Any personal injury lawyer in Seattle can tell you how devastating it is to learn about any fatal accident that claims the lives of any resident of Washington.
The news outlets have stated that a 22-year-old man from Prosser was killed near Paterson. According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident took place on State highway 221 last Wednesday around 6 in the morning.
The man was driving on the southbound lanes of the freeway when he suddenly lost grip of the wheel. The vehicle spun and drove straight into the side of a cattle truck that was being driven by a 25-year-old man. The first driver was killed and two cows were injured. The truck driver did not sustain any injuries.
Since the crash is still under investigation, no further details were disclosed.
My condolences go out to the victim’s family and closest friends in this tragic moment of their lives.
