Wednesday Memo: Bad drivers? Take our poll … Oregon lake tragedy … Stopping school hazing

Bad drivers? A study says we’re bad drivers and getting worse. Do you think Seattle drivers are getting worse? Vote in our poll.

How tragic: Three generations of one family died in that Oregon lake — a 3-year-old boy, his mother and his grandmother. Authorities say it appears to have been an accident.

Hazing at Garfield High School in Seattle: We didn’t know this was happening, but this story spells it out and problems it’s led to. Tell us: Is hazing a problem at your school?

Fatal crash in Snohomish County: One person is dead and another seriously injured in a one-car crash on Marine Drive at Hermosa Beach Drive on the Tulalip Reservation about 8:30 p.m. yesterday.  A 47-year-old woman died, and a 49 year-old man was injured in the crash.

Also, there was a fatal motorcycle crash on the West Seattle Freeway leading up to I-5 this morning, according to the State Patrol. The driver of the motorcycle died, and a woman passenger was thrown from the bike and seriously injured. She survived because she was thrown into mesh netting on the side of the road. We’ll have more on this soon.
