Just posted at SPDBlotter: Police are asking for help finding witnesses in a West Seattle bicycle crash this morning. They found a woman in her twenties, with life-threatening injuries, in the 7700 block of Delridge (map). But they don’t know what happened – whether someone hit her, or whether something went wrong and she was the only one involved. From The Blotter:
Traffic Collision Investigation detectives were called to the scene to investigate and process the collision site. It is unknown at this point whether or not this was a single vehicle collision or a hit and run. The investigation continues. Anyone who may have information regarding this collision is asked to contact detectives as 206 684-8927.
Checking the 911 log, it looks like medics first responded to that area around quarter past 6 this morning. We’re checking with police now to get more information beyond what’s on The Blotter. 6:28 PM UPDATE: Lots more info in comments during the day, at least regarding what was seen at the scene after it happened. Meantime, we called police late today to ask if there’s any new info – regarding the bicyclist’s condition, or any information on the crash’s cause. Short answer: No. (Without knowing the name of the rider, by the way, we are unable to independently obtain information on her condition from the hospital. So if anyone who knows her does see this and is able to let us all know how she is doing, that will be appreciated.) 8:01 PM UPDATE: Amy sent this via e-mail:
i do know her. and right now all i know is she is in ICU i don’t want to um
say her name cause i don’t know if they’d want that.
but shes in icu she has facial fractures, a broken arm scrapes bruises and
some internal injuries. she probably will need surgery for the facial
fractures. but other than that i do not know how she is. that update was
given to me around 1 pmish. prayers for her and her family are appreciated.
