US 97 Crash Injures Four People

Toppenish, WA (July 25, 2021) – On Friday, people were injured in US 97 vehicle crash.

The authorities received the crash report at about 12:07 p.m. at State Route 22, wherein two vehicles were involved.

Apparently, a couple from Seeley Lake, MT was northbound on US-97 in a 2020 Dodge RAM pickup truck.

At the same time, a 39-year-old Yakima man with a passenger was stopped at the traffic light in the northbound lane of the highway.

Moreover, officers confirmed that all four of the vehicles’ occupants sustained injuries in the accident. Rescuers rushed them to Astria Toppenish Hospital to be medically evaluated and treated. There has been no update on their condition.

Both vehicles incurred reportable damage, but neither was totaled.

Officers said the Montana man was speeding for road conditions when he collided into the Yakima man’s vehicle.

The authorities said impairment from drugs and/or alcohol did not play a factor in this accident.

Since you cannot read the intention of the driver in front of you, don’t tailgate. 

Always maintain some distance between your vehicle and the one ahead in order to give yourself enough response time should the vehicle ahead make a sudden turn or stop.

Prevent Traffic Accidents

While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat.

Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

That is why in accidents like US 97 crash, it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible.

Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:

-First, always drive at a controllable speed.

-Then, it is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.

– Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.

– This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.

– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
