2 Hurt in Everett Multi-Vehicle Accident
EVERETT, WA (April 15, 2019) – Two people sustained injuries after a multi-vehicle crash and a lumber-filled semi rig overturned on 5 Freeway on April 12.
Due to the crash, two people, including the semi-truck driver, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the chain reaction collision.
At about 6:15 a.m., troopers, and medics arrived in the southbound lanes of 5 Freeway near Pacific Avenue. They responded after receiving reports of a serious multi-vehicle accident.
Furthermore, the collision blocked two lanes upon the semi’s rollover. Fortunately, all the lanes have since reopened. However, the southbound on-ramp from Pacific Avenue remains closed for an extended period.
The preliminary investigation revealed that the chain reaction started when a car changed lanes and clipped a pickup truck. The car which started the crash spun around and collided into another passenger vehicle.
Meanwhile, the driver of the semi attempted to avoid the collision. As a result, the semi fell down an embankment, down onto the on-ramp from Pacific Avenue to southbound 5 Freeway.
Multi-car crashes can happen anytime, anywhere, and to anyone. One small driving mistake can lead to disastrous results. That is why it is important to drive defensively and always abide by all driving laws. This way, you can ensure your safety and the safety of surrounding vehicles, motorists, and pedestrians.
