Everett Police Looking For Driver in Fatal Collision l Everett Wrongful Death AttorneyPosted on Aug 25, 2009
One of the racing cars, an Acura Integra, slammed into a Toyota Corolla at a high rate of speed. The Acura broadsided the Toyota as the Toyota made a left turn into a driveway from southbound Evergreen Way. Witnesses reported the racing cars were going over 50 mph in a 35 mph zone.
The Acura driver is cooperating with police in their vehicular homicide investigation. The Acura driver apparently did not know the other driver.
This type of tragic car accident is why it's so important to carry UIM insurance. Even if the Acura has car insurance, there's a chance his insurance company may deny coverage because he was street racing. However, if you have UIM insurance on your own car insurance then you can deal with this problem effectively. Especially in a fatal car accident where the surviving spouse and family will have a Washington wrongful death claim against the Acura and even the other car if he can he found.
