1 injured after being pinned beneath truck in recent car accident

| Jun 27, 2019 | Personal Injury |

A collision can take place in the blink of an eye and the sometimes fallout of a crash may also leave others nearby at risk. Individuals who are walking or waiting on a nearby sidewalk may find it difficult, if not impossible to move out of the way of a fast-moving vehicle that veers or is shoved off the road. A 27-year-old woman who was waiting at a bus stop in Washington was reportedly hospitalized with serious injuries after a nearby car accident left her pinned beneath a truck.

Authorities advised that the accident took place just after 4 p.m. on a recent Wednesday as the driver of a truck was attempting to make a left turn. According to reports, the driver failed to yield to oncoming traffic and pulled into the path of a nearby vehicle, subsequently causing a collision to occur. The impact of the crash forced the truck onto a nearby sidewalk, where it came to a rest on top of a woman who was waiting at a bus stop.

Upon arriving at the scene, emergency responders worked to rescue the woman from between the truck and bus stop bench. After nearly 45 minutes, they were able to free her and she was rushed to a nearby hospital for medical care. Following an investigation into the crash, police advised that the driver of the truck was taken into custody on suspicion of vehicular assault.

Suffering severe harm in a car accident can be a stressful and scary experience. Following such a crash, a person in Washington could choose to speak with an experienced attorney for guidance on his or her available options for legal recourse. An attorney can examine a client’s injuries and financial needs and assist in pursuing the restitution deserved through a personal injury claim against the party deemed responsible.
