Two fatal car accidents on the same road in two days
Posted on Friday, June 26th, 2020 at 2:35 pm
YAKIMA, WA – Four people died in two separate fatal car accidents on Lateral A Road in just the past two days, according to the Yakima Herald.
The first accident occurred Wednesday morning when an SUV collided with a semi-truck after failing to stop at a stop sign on Kays Road. The SUV, carrying two people, caught fire after rolling, killing both occupants. The driver of the semi-truck sustained only minor injuries.
The second accident occurred Thursday around 12:50 p.m. at Lateral A and Lateral 1 roads in Wapato. This accident is strikingly similar to the first, as a sedan carrying two people struck a semi-truck as it attempted to cross Lateral A Road. The two people in the sedan were killed, and there is no word yet on the condition of the truck driver.
Lieutenant Aaron Wuitschick told FOX41 Yakima that both accidents could have been prevented if the drivers had looked both ways and proceeded with more caution.
