Everett, WA (July 17, 2021) - On Wednesday, July 14, a total of three people were injured following a two-vehicle accident in the Everett area.
The incident reportedly occurred just south of the city on Highway 99 near Gibson Road. Local reports revealed that a 20-year-old Everett woman was traveling in a white Mazda CX-9 while passing another vehicle at a high rate of speed. At around 5:10 p.m. that day, the woman reportedly crashed in the passenger-side door of a blue Volkswagen Jetta that was in the process of making a left-hand turn onto the highway.
A 21-year-old Snohomish passenger in the Jetta suffered critical injuries in the impact and was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Both other drivers were also injured. The 33-year-old driver of the Jetta was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett and the other motorist was transported to Swedish Edmonds.

Intersection Accidents in Seattle WA
Collisions at intersections are among the most dangerous possible and account for more than half of all serious injuries and a fourth of all fatalities on the road. Left-hand turns are involved in about a quarter of all crashes reported at roadway crossings. According to the Federal Highway Administration, approximately 2.5 million automobile accidents occur at intersections each year, accounting for more than 40% of all documented car incidents in the United States, demonstrating just how dangerous these areas can be.
Serious automobile accident victims frequently struggle to grasp their legal rights in time to defend themselves, and the initial few minutes following an accident are critical in obtaining compensatory damages. The majority of individuals are unaware of state laws, regulations concerning insurance coverage, and what to do if they are hurt in a vehicle accident, which can be a major obstacle in filing a personal injury claim.
