Snow, Ice Contributed to Fatal I-90 Wreck
Spokane (January 2, 2020) – A 57-year-old man was killed last Friday after his vehicle struck a guardrail on I-90 and tumbled down an embankment separating both directions of traffic. The man, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected and died at the scene.
Washington State Patrol troopers believe that the accident was likely caused by inclement weather. In addition to below-freezing temperatures, light snow fell in the Spokane area that morning and led to slick road conditions.
Bad weather has caused multiple accidents since November on I-90, including the largest pile-up in Spokane’s history. Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys urges Washington residents to drive with caution in winter weather and to always buckle up. Source: KREM
