B.C. Drunk Driving and Texting Accident Kills 1| Washington Auto Accident Attorneys

Drunk driving alone accounts for a significant number of auto accidents and fatalities each year. Being a Seattle car accident attorney and Bellevue wrongful death lawyer, I have witnessed the consequences of intoxicated driving and the impact it has on the families involved.

On June 11th A 23-year-old passenger was killed in a reckless driving accident in Cranbrook B.C. Officials cite both alcohol and texting played a significant contribution in the accident.

At about 3 a.m., the 24-year-old driver hit a cliff and then rolled over three lanes of traffic on Highway 3.

The passenger, Ian Shepherd, was not wearing a seat-belt at the time and was thrown from the vehicle and was instantly killed in the impact. The Driver, who was wearing a seat-belt, sustained only minor injuries

According to investigators, the Blood Alcohol Level of the driver was twice the legal limit. They also believe he was texting moments before the rollover collision.

It is always difficult to learn of lives lost in auto accidents. The last thing you want to worry about in these situations is legal issues. In an attempt to provide you with much deserved help and assistance, I have co-authored a book with attorney Patrick J. Kang which is a guide for families of Washington wrongful death victims.  The book is called, In Case of Death: Straight Talk on Washington Wrongful Death, and is available at no charge to Washington residents by clicking on the preceding link.

Aaron Brookens thinks his texting while driving car accident was meant to happen. “It’s crazy,” he said. “I actually missed my exit for home, for some reason. I never miss that exit, ever. It’s the Avalon exit, and the accident happened right after the exit, so I can’t really explain that.”

Brookens was texting his girlfriend at the time of his car accident. He suffered some serious leg injuries and now wants to take his message of the dangers of texting while driving to schools whenever possible.
