The mother of three young children was left with “blood everywhere” after a “tragic” car accident in Washington state, a woman who was in the passenger seat said Sunday.
The woman, who asked to remain anonymous because of the ongoing investigation, said she and her husband were on their way home from a job in the Spokane area when their car collided with a semi-truck carrying a large shipment of building supplies.
The driver of the semi-trailer, who was not injured, was able to get out and take the car to a nearby garage, where it was towed.
The woman said the car’s rear-end hit a tree in the street before the driver crashed into a tree, a tree branch and a utility pole.
She said her husband was unable to stop his car and was taken to a hospital.
“The first thing I thought was my husband had died.
Then I looked up and he was gone,” the woman said.”
My husband was not dead, he was injured.
But the injuries were so severe, I had to go into the emergency room and had to get an ambulance.”
She said her mother was among the passengers and that her daughter, 12-year-old twins and two-year old son were all taken to the hospital.
The family was not hurt in the accident, the woman told the Associated Press.
She said the family is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
The truck driver was not immediately available for comment.
Police said they have no suspects.
