Vehicle Hit State Patrol Car on Interstate 5
Bellingham, WA (November 2, 2020) – On Thursday, a vehicle struck a state patrol car on Interstate 5 after responding to a deer strike.
The authorities responded to a deer strike just after 6 a.m. near the North Lake Samish exit of southbound Interstate 5.
Trooper Heather Axtman said the patrol vehicle was empty at the time of the crash and nobody was hurt in the incident
“Sadly, we do get hit more often statewide than we really should,” Axtman added. “It serves as a good reminder to move over when you see the lights.”
The patrol car was hit by a 1998 Honda Passport driven by a 36-year-old Bellingham woman. The Honda has three passengers at the time of the crash, including two girls under the age of 10.
Meanwhile, the authorities blocked the left lane of southbound traffic
May this incident be a reminder for all motorists to drive responsibly. Drivers should keep in mind that distracted driving, speeding, and failing to yield will lead to dangerous road accidents.
How To Proceed From Crash
While driving is essential for many to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous daily maneuvers. Thus, it is therefore important to know how to proceed in case you find yourself involved in a traffic collision.
On the AAA Foundation Web site, chief executive officer Peter Kissinger repeatedly labeled the epidemic of motor vehicle-related accidents a “public health crisis.”
