Bellevue Woman Hit by Truck

Posted Friday, June 14, 2019 by Chris Thayer

Alternative TextA woman waiting at the bus stop near NE8th Ave and 120th St NE in Bellevue had tragedy strike while waiting for her bus in Bellevue. A woman was struck and pinned underneath a truck, according to KOMO News. The driver of the truck was sitting at a red light when he suddenly went into oncoming traffic, got hit by a car, and then slammed into the woman at the bus stop.

Preliminary investigations by police did not find that the driver of the truck was impaired, but police are investigating if he was distracted in some other way, like by being on his cell phone. No one is sure why the truck pulled away from the red light and into oncoming traffic. Investigators stated that the driver of the truck will likely be arrested on vehicular assault charges. The woman was taken to the hospital and treated for a badly broken leg and other injuries.

*What to do After an Accident *No one starts the day thinking that he or she will be injured in an accident.

As such, it is important to be prepared and have the knowledge of how to handle an injury and emergency situation should it arise. The following are steps to take after an accident to ensure that you will be able to pursue compensation for your injuries with a personal injury claim.

*Get the Help You Need After an Accident *Drivers who act without thinking or put the lives of pedestrians and other drivers around them at risk by being negligent can be held liable for their actions through a personal injury claim. A personal injury suit may be the best option for those injured individuals seeking compensation for their injuries.
