  1. Thanks WSB

    Three cars looks really bad. Hope everyone is alright.

  2. I’m checking with Seattle Fire. This is still going on so I’m going to escalate to a separate story, had hoped it would clear faster.

  3. My boyfriend was heading eastbound when he witnessed the accident. The black pickup truck was stalled or disabled in westbound center lane and the silver SUV obviously didn’t see that until the last second and tried to veer into next lane, but it was too late. Next thing he sees is debris flying everywhere. We were wondering if drivers are ok?

  4. I have a separate story about this now, and a message out to SFD to ask about injuries. – TR
