Yet another West Seattle traffic alert: Crash on Holden west of 35th

October 9, 2010 at 11:49 pm | In Sunrise Heights, West Seattle news | 3 Comments

Just got the photo from Christopher D – it’s from a crash that originally was dispatched as a “heavy rescue” but turned out not to need that kind of attention – He wrote, “I live on Holden St by the new fire station and around 11:00 this evening heard some loud banging noises … (went out) to witness a flipped car that was still running, a fire truck and police.” He says the car hit two parked cars, and that Holden is still blocked west of 35th SW (map) as of a few minutes ago. This is one of many incidents on local roads and highways today, including the crashes that closed the West Seattle Bridge for a while earlier, as reported here; please take extra care in this rain, which has been very heavy at times.


  1. So bummed for these neighbors who had their parked cars badly smashed up, including the VW Westfalia I cycle past and admire every single morning!

  2. I am so sorry for the beautiful Westy! Such a sad sight to see this Monday morning…i also say ‘hi’ to it as I drive by everyday.

  3. I second Tom’s comment! I too cycle past the Westfalia almost every morning and am sad for the owners.
    But can someone explain to me how one manages to flip a large car on a neighborhood street? By looking at the result of the impact, the driver was fast to say the least – which I experience a lot on this ‘racetrack’ connection between California and 35th…
