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.
Sorry, comment time is over.
