Deadly 2-Vehicle Collision Involving Bus
Snoqualmie, Washington (April 2, 2019)
According to the Washington State Patrol, a deadly accident involving a bus left a man dead and a woman injured Friday, March 22nd, on westbound I-90 near State Route 18.
At roughly 5:42 a.m., authorities responded to the crash site where a bus driven by a 57-year-old Minnesota woman collided with a undisclosed vehicle driven by Richard Sengar, 56, accompanied by passenger Samantha Hanson, 30.
Details are unclear in regards to the events that lead up to the collision which tragically left Sengar with fatal injuries.
Meanwhile, Sengar’s passenger, Samantha Hanson, suffered injuries described as ranging from moderate to serious. She was taken by ambulance to a nearby medical center.
There were no apparent injuries suffered by the bus driver and whether or not any passengers were on board as the investigation is currently pending.
Authorities have yet to determine liability publicly as it remains unclear who which party will ultimately be held responsible. Meanwhile, the family of Richard Sengar will likely be given the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit pending the conclusion of the investigation. Meanwhile, Samantha Hanson will be entitled to a personal injury claim.
When liability is assigned to an at-fault motorist involved in a fatal collision, family members of wrongful death victims are subject to receive and be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses and loss of companionship while injury accident victims have the right to recompense for medical bills and expenses and pain and suffering.
