Collision Near Arlington Kills Two Drivers

As a concerned Seattle injury lawyer, I’m always very shocked when I learn about fatal accidents that could have been prevented. I’m unfortunately very familiar with these occurrences and always feel deeply for the members of the family who sadly must deal with the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one.

According to several news agencies covering accidents in the great state of Washington, two drivers were killed as a result of an accident that happened last Wednesday night.

The Washington State Patrol released an official report showing that a 31-year-old man from Lake Stevens was driving his vehicles on Highway 9 when it suddenly veered off to the centerline and into the bath of an oncoming vehicle driven by a 64-year-old driver from Lynnwood.

Both drivers were killed in this head-on collision. A passenger was taken to the hospital but the extent of the victim’s injuries wasn’t disclosed.

My condolences go out to the closest friends and family members of the two drivers tragically killed in this collision.

Seat Belt Issue Prompts a Recall of All 2009-12 Subaru Forester SUVs

According to the official announcement released by the company Subaru, all units of the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Forester SUVs are being recalled.

The official reports have showed that there are 275,000 units of the Forester SUV model that could present a serious injury hazard to passengers. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed that due to the fact that the rear center seat belt system fails to comply with the federal safety standard requirements, the installation of a child-restraining seat could be improper, which could possibly pose as a serious injury threat to the child.

All recalled units of these vehicles should be taken to local dealerships so a trained staff may replace the faulty seat belt assembly for free with a fully functional new system.

As a personal injury lawyer in our Seattle Lawyers firm, I encourage you to contact the company immediately so you can schedule the inspection and repair of your defective vehicle immediately. Never delay in responding to any recall announcement that addresses a vehicle you own since you could be putting the lives of your loved ones in danger.
