On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, a T-Bone collision occurred when white Honda sedan allegedly took a turn in front of an oncoming Honda CRV SUV. 32nd Avenue in Spokane Valley was backed up for hours while police and Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to the serious accident.
According to various news reports, the driver in the white Honda may have been driving while impaired. The male driver’s car was severely damaged and the driver needed to be extricated. Extrication is necessary when the occupants of a vehicle can not exit through the doors and/or to prevent further injuries.
About Side Impact Collisions
Side impact collisions, also known as broadside collisions or “T-Bone” collisions, occur when one vehicle hits the driver or passenger side of another vehicle. Side impact collisions often result in head injuries and/or other serious traumatic injuries.
In some side impact collisions, a driver pulls out in front of another driver and the driver who hits them has little or no time to avoid the accident. In other cases, such as intersection accidents, a driver may run a red light and broadside a vehicle. Yet in other cases, both parties may be partially responsible for the wreck.
