As a border state, Washington has a high level of interaction with British Columbia, Canada. Canadian trucking companies routinely travel on Washington highways, and Canadian drivers come to Washington for recreation and business. But Canadian laws regarding liability and car insurance are very different than Washington laws. What happens when you are hit by a Canadian driver here in Washington? And what happens if you are a visiting Canadian hit by a Washington driver? Who can help you?
The Washington State patrol believes drunk driving may have been a factor in a chain reaction crash that involved three cars and a semi-truck in South Seattle Monday. Five people were injured in the crash that took place just after 11 p.m. on Interstate 5.
Those who were stuck in traffic on Interstate 5 in Seattle Thursday may have now heard about the cause of that major traffic jam. A semi truck that was driving too fast caused a rollover car accident, which blocked all lanes of traffic for several hours.
A 20-year-old man was airlifted to a Seattle hospital last week after an early morning car accident on Highway 525 in Freeland, Washington.
