Victor Jimenezramos and Atit Shaw Hurt in Semi-Truck Accident Involving Falling Debris
NAPAVINE, WA (November 23, 2021) — Victor M. Jimenezramos and Atit P. Shaw suffered injuries in a semi-truck crash on Sunday, November 14.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident happened when a car hit the Koontz Road overpass on 5 Freeway at around 7:48 p.m.
Reports said 45-year-old Jimenezramos, of Escondido, California, drove north in a 2012 GMC Acadia. Then a semi — a 1996 International driven by 50-year-old Thomas Y. Jun, of Bellevue, hit the bridge. The impact caused debris to fall on the GMC and a 2015 Honda Civic driven by 69-year-old Robyn V. Arce, of Seattle.
Arce’s vehicle then hit a 2021 Lexus driven by 33-year-old Shaw, of Bellevue.
The semi came to a stop on the right shoulder, the GMC came to rest in the ditch, and the Honda and Lexus stopped on the freeway.
Shaw suffered injuries but was not transported to a medical center. Medics rushed Jimenezramos to Harborview.
The official cause of the incident is still under investigation. Officials do not believe drugs or alcohol is a factor in the crash.
