Drunk motorcyclist crashes through I-5 construction zone | Motorcycle crash Attorney Seattle


Posted on Apr 26, 2009

The Washington State Patrol issued this media release regarding a 34 year old drunk motorcyclist, Nathan Rolfson from Seattle, who totally ignored the traffic warning signs and arrows and drove his 2007 Suzuki GSXR 600 (sport bike) through a row of orange barrels and slammed into the back of an attenuator truck, on I-5 near the West Seattle Highway and Columbian Way on ramp.

The attenuator truck is designed to protect the other workers or vehicles in the construction zone from errant vehicles such as this biker.  They have this long protective device in the rear of a large truck which acts as a giant shock absorber.  This attenuator truck prevented serious injury from occurring to the workers.  However, Rolfson did sustain non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Harborview Medical Center.  He was arrested for DUI.
