People Hospitalized in Crash on Interstate 82
Granger, WA (November 26, 2021)– On Wednesday, at about 6:18 a.m., two people suffered injuries in a vehicle crash on Interstate 82.
Reports said a pickup truck lost control on the icy overpass eastbound on the freeway. It collided into the barrier and the drivers behind it rear-end each other’s vehicle.
A car was struck and was pushed off the road and into the underpass.
Right away, the responders took two individuals to a local hospital with non-fatal injuries.
The authorities consider the icy road conditions on the overpass to have contributed to the accident. He said they do not suspect any drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Munoz said they’re still investigating the cause of the crash.
Aim high in steering, i.e. don’t make your steering adjustments based on what is directly in front of you, but rather what is down the road.If the road is winding to the right, for example, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your turns smoother.
