2 injured when truck slams into minivan

Just the same as when two cars collide with one another, when a car and a truck are involved in a crash injuries can occur. In fact, injuries are often more severe when one of the vehicles is much bigger than the other. Many of our California readers spend time on the roadways in other states, including Washington. For this reason, a recent accident involving a truck and a minivan will likely be of interest.

On Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, a semi-truck lost its brakes while traveling on Highway 18. As a result, it crashed into a minivan. The Washington State Patrol received a report of the accident at approximately 6:15 a.m. An investigation noted that the truck was heading west when it lost its brakes and decided to exit the highway. Upon doing so, it collided with a minivan.

The driver of the truck was not wearing a seatbelt, which led to him being ejected. The driver of the minivan had to be rescued from the vehicle by emergency crews. Both drivers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Due to the extent of the accident, there were delays on Highway 18 as well as Issaquah-Hobart Road. Immediately following the accident, crews cleared the wreckage while police investigated the finer details.

This truck accident resulted in two people being injured, with one being ejected from a vehicle. Fortunately, neither party was killed or suffered serious injuries. Anybody who has been injured in a vehicle related accident has the right to contact a personal injury attorney who can protect his or her rights.
