Washigton State Patrol Warns: Check Your Trailer Before You Tow It
This reminder comes after a wheel came loose from a boat trailer at approximately 12:40 am on July 25th. The boat trailer was being towed in the southbound lanes of I-5 at 304th St in Federal Way when the right wheel came loose. The wheel hit a semi truck and shot across the median and landed on top of a passenger car in the northbound lanes. The impact was so extreme that it crushed the roof of the car forcing it into the passenger compartment. The female driver, a Pennsylvania resident and sole occupant, was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
