The Washington State Patrol is seeking witnesses to a New Year’s Eve accident that occurred around 7:00am on December 31, 2012 on northbound Interstate 405 just south of State Route 167 in Renton.
Three of the five occupants of the Outback were injured in the rollover accident. The accident victims were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and other local hospitals for treatment.
According to the WSP press release, the driver of a Honda Accord was speeding, driving aggressively and passing other vehicles on the right shoulder when it abruptly made a lane collision and rear-ended a green Subaru Outback. The driver of the Honda may have been racing another vehicle at the time.
The force of the collision caused the Outback to roll.
The WSP is seeking anyone with information of the accident or witnesses to contact Detective Russ Haake at 425-401-7717 or e-mail Russ.Haake@wsp.wa.gov.
