Even though drunk driving is illegal and dangerous, many people still engage in it. Unfortunately, it can often lead to serious consequences. A Seattle car-pedestrian accident that happened on March 25 has led to two deaths, with two others suffering from severe injuries. The fatal car accident was caused by a man who was apparently driving while impaired.
A young Seattle woman was among three people treated at a King County hospital in the wake of an October 4 crash that led to the death of a 68-year-old tractor driver. Police suspect that drunk driving may have played a role in the fatal truck accident that took place in the early afternoon on I-5 in Federal Way.
A Seattle man was picking up his 8-year-old son from school last month at about 1:20 p.m., when his car was suddenly rear-ended by an unmarked Seattle police car. Behind the wheel was a Seattle Police officer, allegedly under the influence of alcohol. The collisions occurred at the intersection of Chennault Beach Road and SR 525, and the impact from the car accident caused the car that was rear-ended car to crash into two other vehicles. The man's vehicle had been hit so hard in the collision that it was pushed underneath the car in front of him.
