Possible DUI accident involves three cars and injures two

Washington state roads have a tendency to get busy, much like other roadways across the nation. Motorists are constantly on their way to and from destinations, often in a rush. This can be a toxic symptom on the roadways, resulting in distracted and reckless driving. In some cases, drivers might be under the influence of alcohol. This can cause some of the biggest dangers on the road, resulting in serious and even fatal crashes.

A possible DUI accident occurred in Tacoma recently. Based on preliminary reports, the crash involved three vehicles and occurred during the early morning hours on the westbound state Route 16 off-ramp at union Avenue. Washington State Patrol believes that the crash occurred when two vehicles were stopped and a third vehicle rear-ended one of them. This resulted in the struck car colliding with the other vehicle.

When emergency crews arrived at the scene of the accident, two victims of the crash were transported to the hospital for medical treatment. The severity of their injuries was not reported at this time. The crash is currently being investigated. Authorities believe this crash is a possible DUI and vehicular assault case, reporting that one driver was taken into custody.

Following investigation, the cause of this multi-vehicle crash will likely be determined. When cause is determined in a crash, this can help prove liability. For those harmed in a crash, it might be possible to hold a negligent motorist accountable through a personal injury action. This legal claim could also help with the recovery of compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other related damages.
