At the Law Offices of Matthew Dubin we are used to representing drivers who are injured in traffic accidents. However, we occasionally see other situations as well. On Tuesday, May 2, a small airplane crashed on the Mukilteo Speedway in Snohomish County, taking out powerlines, and exploding into a fireball that fell onto cars during the afternoon commute.
It was just before 4pm on Tuesday when the plane lost power after takeoff. The pilot, attempting to avoid hitting a building, steered the plane toward Harbour Pointe Boulevard, but he didn’t quite make it. As a result of the crash, around 9,000 households lost power for 40 minutes. Amazingly, there were no serious injuries.
The crash was caught on a driver’s dashcam.
You never know what might happen when you’re on the road. Keep an eye out, be careful, and if you are injured, make sure you call a qualified personal injury attorney.
