West Vancouver Car Accident Lawyers Report on Scary Embankment Slide
Posted on Aug 23, 2013
A Vancouver car accident lawyer at McComb Witten was relieved to learn that the driver of a van who flew off an
embankment on West Vancouver’s St. George Place survived her harrowing ordeal with minor injuries.
RCMP got a call early on Monday, July 29, 2013, about a bizarre crash in the Gleneagles neighborhood—someone saw a vehicle smash into the top of a storage shed. The 45-year-old United Kingdom woman apparently made an error and hit the gas when she intended to hit the brake. Fortunately, she escaped with minor injuries to her face. The B.C. Ambulance Service and West Vancouver Fire Department participated in the rescue.
Ten days earlier, in Chilliwack, a man on his maiden voyage on his new Suzuki DL 650 motorcycle collided with an SUV. Local RCMP Constable, Matt Wright, told reporters that the SUV’s driver had been exiting a parking lot. Curiously, the SUV's driver had just acquired his own new motorcycle (a Harley Davidson), when the approaching motorcyclist T-boned him.
The force of the impact launched the biker up onto the windshield of the SUV, causing some injuries that later required hospitalization. However, he was up and walking shortly after the collision. Wright attributed the crash to bad timing. He then reminded local drivers to be on the lookout for motorcyclists, who are sometimes challenging for drivers to spot.
The Vancouver car accident attorneys at McComb Witten are pleased to report that no one died or got seriously hurt in these crashes.
