When we are on the road, we expect that the other drivers around us are obeying the road rules and being safe. We might have our children in the backseat, or we are driving our parents to their next doctor’s appointment. Some drivers do not adhere to the rules of the road and make terrible choices that put all of us at risk every day. At Russell & Hill, PLLC, our Spokane car accident lawyers want to discuss a recent accident where a reckless driver caused mayhem and injuries.
What Happened in This Spokane Car Accident?
In November 2020, John Yarbaro was driving eastbound before the Sprague exit when he lost control of his vehicle and hit barriers on both sides of the interstate. He also collided with a car, driven by a 70-year old who was transported to the hospital, along with his 68-year old passenger.
Yarbaro was also transported to the hospital as well.
This blocked I-90 for hours, impeding people from getting where they needed to be.
This reckless driving incident could have been much more tragic, and we have all experienced seeing people on the freeway, driving much too fast for the speed limit and the current conditions. Many people are not as fortunate and face grave injuries or even death on the road caused by reckless drivers.
