Puyallup, WA (September 16, 2021) - A Kent man suffered serious injuries and a driver was taken into custody following a traffic accident in the Puyallup area on Tuesday, September 14.
The incident occurred on WA-167 NB early that morning at around 3 a.m. Local reports indicated that four men were traveling in the vehicle at the time of the crash. The car reportedly left the roadway before hitting a guardrail.
The impact resulted in the vehicle flipping onto its side. Paramedics transported one victim,a 32-year-old man, to Tacoma General Hospital for treatment of sustained injuries. The 29-year-old Federal Way man driving the car was arrested for driving under the influence. He is potentially facing charges related to vehicular assault.
An ongoing investigation into the cause of the accident is being handled by local law enforcement officials.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
Drunk Driving Crashes in Washington
It is never a smart idea to get behind the wheel when intoxicated or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Despite this, drunk drivers remain a big problem on Seattle's roadways, with inebriated drivers accounting for a significant number of fatalities each year. An inebriated driver loses control of his or her vehicle and is unable to react appropriately to road hazards, raising the risk of a serious accident. Drinking and driving is a major public safety concern in Washington. In the United States, one person is killed by a drunk driver every 52 minutes, resulting in around 28 deaths each day.
