Scary Car Accident

Saturday, October 19, 2013
US 2 East of Index, WA

One man dead in this head on collision late Saturday afternoon.



Looking at the two cars involved in this accident, it's hard to believe anyone survived. The State Patrol said a man driving this Mercedes westbound on US 2 passed another vehicle illegally and struck a pick-up head-on. The Mercedes driver died, but his passenger, a pregnant woman, survived.  She and the three men in the pick-up were all taken to hospitals with unknown injuries.  Witnesses said the Mercedes was driving erratically before the crash.
I have a new motto now whenever I'm in a car: Pay attention in every direction. I have read about more and more head on collisions caused by illegal passing, DUI, health conditions, and sleepy drivers.
