Earlier this week, a car accident occurred in Northeast Portland involving
three vehicles on the 13900 block of Northeast Glisan Street around 139th Avenue.
Preliminary investigations determined that just prior to 8:00 p.m., Driver
1 lost control of the 2002 Acura TL and collided with a 2008 Toyota Corolla,
driven by Driver 2 with Passenger 1 in the vehicle as well. The Corolla
then hit a 2005 Nissan Sentra carrying Driver 3 and Passenger 2.
Four of the individuals involved were transported to the hospital after
the accident. Driver 2 and Passenger 1 suffered serious injuries and remained
in the hospital. Investigators determined that Driver 1 was not impaired
at the time of the accident.
There was a fourth vehicle not involved in the accident, but the driver
may be able to provide important information on what happened.
There is a possibility that the cause of the accident could have been some
kind of driver error or a
defective part on the vehicle. When this happens and accidents occur, it can result in serious injuries,
such as in this case. It is important for victims to make sure they are
protected legally after this kind of situation.
A distracted driver or a tire randomly blowing out could cause a vehicle
to lose control and collide with another vehicle. These are serious situations
that should be handled with the utmost care.
