Accident kills 3 on Highway 20

Washington drivers may not always realize just how dangerous driving can be. People tend to just think about driving as just another mode of transportation. Since it is done so frequently, people can forget the dangers that lurk on the roadways. In particular, people may not realize how dangerous negligent drivers can be. A driver that is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a driver that ignores driving rules or a driver that is busy on the person's phone can cause serious damage in a matter of seconds.
