A Pasco car crash incident occurred on Tuesday, July 18, when a driver collided his car with a Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) truck along the US 12 Highway.
Pasco Car Crash
As per a recent update on a Facebook post by the Washington State Department of Transportation, the Pasco car crash happened at approximately 3:00 p.m. that day.
Before the Pasco car crash incident, WSDOT crews were diligently carrying out a mobile mowing operation on the U.S. 12 Highway near the Pasco area. The WSDOT truck engaged in the mowing operation was equipped with clearly visible strobe lights and prominently displayed signs, effectively signaling the presence of road work ahead to drivers on the highway.
However, despite the visual cues and warning signs in place, a sedan failed to notice the impending work zone and ended up colliding with the back of the WSDOT truck, resulting in a crash.
According to a published article, the Pasco car crash did not cause any injuries to the WSDOT crews operating the truck.
On the other hand, the sedan driver sustained injuries and was promptly transported to a nearby hospital for treatment due to complaints of leg pains.
Authorities Reminders Following Pasco Car Crash
Following the Pasco car crash, the Washington State Department of Transportation took the opportunity to remind all residents and drivers about the increased road work activities that typically take place during the summertime.
Such operations are often necessitated by favorable weather conditions, allowing crews to carry out essential maintenance and improvement tasks on the highways.
As a precautionary measure, WSDOT is earnestly advising all drivers to remain vigilant while traveling, especially during this season of increased road work to avoid any accident like the Pasco car crash.
