6 Hurt in Tukwila Auto Accident on 405 Freeway
TUKWILA, WA (July 16, 2020) – Tuesday morning, six people sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle accident on 405 Freeway.
According to reports, the crash occurred at around 7:10 a.m. Then, the troopers and several emergency units came to the crash scene, south of Exit 1 in the southbound lanes.
Upon their arrival, they located two overturned vehicles. Moreover, the crash also led to a heavy traffic backup in the southbound lanes of 405 Freeway.
However, the lanes have since reopened.
At this time, the authorities continue to investigate to identify the events that have led up to the crash.
Meanwhile, another crash occurred in the southbound lanes of 5 Freeway and NE 145th Street. Due to the crash, all lanes were blocked and had caused a six-mile backup. Fortunately, the crews cleared the road and the lanes have since reopened.
May this be a reminder to all drivers that operating a vehicle is a responsibility that should not be taken lightly. Moreover, put all distractions away and be careful around other travelers. Always keep a safe distance from other vehicles around you. By being a defensive driver, you can minimize the risks of car accidents.
Washington Multi-Vehicle Accidents
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
When driving, scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to check whether there’s a possible hazard. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. Also, we were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead
