Lynnwood Crash Injures WSDOT Crew and Another

Lynnwood, WA (September 18, 2021)– On Friday, a WSDOT crew member suffered injuries in a crash on Interstate 5.

Officers said that the WSDOT worker’s truck was parked to block the HOV lane to block the traffic from an earlier crash.

“A vehicle drove past flares, struck a cone that was blocking the scene, then rear-ended the back of the Incident Response Truck,” says an officer.

The crew  member was sitting inside the vehicle at the time of the crash.

Right away, rescuers took the worker and the involved driver to Swedish Hospital in Edmonds.

The authorities said the WSDOT worker did not suffer serious injuries and they expect him to recover. 

On the other hand, the driver who caused the accident suffered serious injuries. They said he will be cited for second-degree negligent driving.

It is important to always pay attention to your surroundings whenever driving. This, and abiding by all the driving laws as well as following all the road signs are simple ways to practice defensive driving. Defensive driving can lessen the chance of serious road accidents happening.

The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.
