Former Wenatchee City Councilman, cited in 4-car accident, didn’t have insurance

The Wenatchee World reports that Steve May, a former Wenatchee City Council member, was at fault in Saturday morning’s 4-car accident. It was surprising to learn that May was an uninsured motorist.

May was issued two citations: following too closely and driving without insurance. Police are also awaiting the results of blood toxicology reports.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in this accident. However, it is quite surprising that someone so civic minded as to serve on a City Council would fail to obtain car insurance.

If you are involved in a automobile injury accident in Seattle or throughout King County, the odds are that almost one in five drivers are uninsured even though Washington State law requires that all drivers have insurance.

As a Bellevue personal injury attorney, I recommend to all of my clients to always purchase uninsured motorist coverage on their policy. Make sure to have your uninsured motorist limits equal to your liability limits so you are protected if you are involved in an uninsured motorist accident.
