A Washington state newspaper recently checked in with an engaged couple who survived a motorcycle accident six months ago when an impaired truck driver slammed into them. The newspaper found that although the couple made it through the horrific accident, they continue to struggle with severe injuries and depression.
Freezing rain and slick roads have led to numerous accidents resulting in injuries in the Seattle area this week. Thursday morning, a Washington State Department of Transportation worker was hit by a car while assisting at the scene of another car accident, according to a news report.
Seattle drivers know that driving drunk is a bad decision. It is dangerous and puts your own life, as well as the lives of other drivers and pedestrians, at extreme risk. It is irresponsible, causes car accidents, and those who drive drunk should be held accountable.
