12:27 AM: Southbound Highway 509 just south of Cloverdale – between West Seattle and South Park – is closed right now because of a rollover crash. We don’t know details of the crash, but Seattle Fire units originally responded for a “heavy rescue” and Seattle Police units are being asked to help the State Patrol block off the area.
12:34 AM UPDATE: According to scanner traffic, a “mid-size car” rolled multiple times, and came to a rest with a 28-year-old man pinned under the car; he was quickly extricated by fire/rescue crews, but does NOT appear to have any serious injuries. He’s now being taken to a hospital to be checked out.
6:51 AM UPDATE: The official State Patrol media update is now available and as a commenter noted, it says two cars were involved, one hitting the other while both were traveling “at a high rate of speed.” The driver of the car that rolled, a 2003 Nissan 350, is now described as a 21-year-old Seattle man, taken to Harborview Medical Center; the other driver, a 22-year-old Seattle man, was booked into King County Jail, and the 2000 Daewoo Nubira he was driving was impounded. The WSP says the road was closed for five hours.
