Lynnwood woman injured in car accident when car hood flies up

The Herald reports that a 20-year-old Lynnwood woman was seriously injured in a Everett car accident on northbound Interstate 5 on Thursday night when her car’s hood became unlatched. The woman was driving a Volkswagen Beetle and her view was obstructed by the hood.

According to the report, she swerved and her vehicle was hit by a bus.

The woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where her condition has been upgraded from the intensive care unit.

This type of motor vehicle accident occurs in different forms on a far too often basis. This driver was lucky. We have seen other cases in which a driver has lost a load which obstructed a driver’s view and caused an accident or snow and ice left on top of a car becomes dislodged and obstructs a driver’s view.

In this case, if a mechanic failed to properly fasten the hood latch of the woman’s vehicle, the mechanic may be liable for damages.
