Individuals who operate a vehicle at excessive speeds are inherently less capable or reacting to a variety of driving scenarios. Similar forms of negligence also increase the chances that a major collision may occur and accidents that take place at a high rate of speed can have devastating results. Two people suffered injuries and another person was killed during a recent car accident involving similar circumstances in Washington.
Law enforcement agents say the crash occurred at around 9 p.m. on a recent Sunday. According to reports, the driver of a southbound car was traveling at a high rate of speed when he encountered a vehicle whose driver was attempting to navigate a left turn. The car reportedly collided with the second vehicle shortly thereafter, and police advised that the driver who caused the crash chose to flee the scene on foot, leaving an injured passenger behind in the process.
