5 injured in South Seattle 3-car accident

Five people were injured, one critically, when three vehicles were involved in an accident in South Seattle this morning.

KIRO TV reports that a Honda Accord, Toyota Yaris and a Ford Taurus collided at Martin Luther King Jr. Way and South Graham Street at 8:10am.

According to KIRO TV, a 40-year-old woman was critically injured in the accident. Four other people including two adults and two juveniles were injured in the rollover accident.

The impact of the collision caused one vehicle to rollover. At intersections, this is often caused by one car traveling at excessive speed at the time of the accident.

While no cause of the car accident was listed, the investigation will determine the likely cause. Police will most likely determine whether speed, running a red light or driver distraction were factors in the accident.

Rollover accidents account for nearly 33 percent of car accident fatalities and more than 10,000 people die every year in rollover crashes. In the past few years, automobile manufacturers have made strides in protecting vehicle occupants in rollover crashes by increasing roof strength.

People who are suffer serious injures in rollover car accidents including lacerations, fractures, traumatic brain injuries or paralysis due to another driver’s negligence may be able to obtain compensation for medical bills, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
