On October 12, 2013, Ms. Seward was a passenger in a vehicle that over corrected and struck an overpass pillar. She played no role in causing the incident. The vehicle should have encountered a barrier that would have redirected it. Instead, it hit a mound of dirt, called an earth berm, that WSDOT installed years before.
