Big Rig Driver Among Injured in Everett Multi-Car Collision
EVERETT, WA (April 12, 2019) – Two people suffered injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on the 5 Freeway near Pacific Avenue Friday morning.
Friday’s commute was initially disrupted when a driver switched lanes and clipped a pickup truck. Subsequently, the car that caused the collision spiraled out of control and rammed into another passenger vehicle.
In order to avoid the crash, the semi-truck driver reacted quickly yet ended up tipping over the embankment next to the Pacific Avenue on-ramp. According to reports, the semi dumped loads of lumber onto the freeway, causing a three-mile backup.
Two lanes were reportedly blocked in the crash and two people, including the semi-truck driver, suffered injuries.
The 6:15 a.m. crash required crews and investigators to canvass and clear the area before opening the lanes to commuters.
Drivers are becoming increasingly comfortable on the road where their safety and others are at stake. Driving demands our full attention. It’s never wise to be distracted when behind the wheel.
