Seattle Fatal DUI Crash Injures Christine Farrar
Seattle, WA (July 06, 2022) – On Monday, before 11 a.m., John Farrar, 81, of Eatonville, died, while his wife Christine Farrar, sustained injuries in a DUI collision on Interstate 5.
According to the investigators, a Ford F-350 pickup driven by an intoxicated man was northbound in the freeway’s HOV lane.
At the same time, John Farrar was riding in the passenger seat of a Kia Nitro mini SUV driven by his wife, Christine Farrar.
As their vehicle was passing Jackson Park Golf Course, the Ford F-350 swerved out of the lane and hit the Farrars’ vehicle. The SUV flipped and injured both Christine and John.
Both of the vehicles struck a barrier on the freeway and the F-350 rested in the middle of the HOV lane. Reports say the Nitro stopped closer to the left-hand shoulder.
All three of them were wearing seat belts when the collision happened.
The paramedics rushed the Farrars to Harborview Medical Center, where John Farrar succumbed to his injuries.
The F-350 driver, a 41-year-old Shelton resident, climbed out of his pickup and tried to run away. Luckily, four bystanders chased the man and detained him until troopers arrived.
The authorities took him to another hospital. Officers are investigating him for vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, felony hit-and-run, and DUI.
Moreover, as of Tuesday morning, Christine Farrar is still at the hospital.
We at Sweet Lawyers are sending our condolences to the family and community of John Farrar. May you have courage during this difficult time.
