UPDATE: Flipped-car crash on westbound West Seattle Bridge; dog rescued, reunited

11:59 AM: Thanks for the tip about a flipped-car crash on the westbound West Seattle Bridge. SDOT – which tweeted the image above (from this camera) – says it’s just west of the Highway 99 overpass and that it’s currently blocking all westbound lanes. Per scanner, one person is hurt.

12:33 PM: SDOT says all lanes are now open.

1:14 PM: Via comment and e-mail, we heard that a dog was loose on the roadway after the crash. Just got a call from someone who says the dog was rescued by a man in a Southwest Plumbing truck. So if anyone’s looking for it – that might be a place (the company is based in North Delridge) to start.

1:26 PM: This commenter says they have the dog. We’re crossposting to the Lost/Found Pets page in case someone looks there.

8:56 PM: As also noted in this comment, Max the dog is back home, and reunited with owner Christa!

    Eastbound backed up too from everyone looking.

    Eastbound is moving fine now. The injured person was being put into the ambulance 2 minutes ago and the SDOT was beginning clean up

    Steph – as that photo shows a man standing on the eastbound side of the barrier, I would certainly hope everyone going eastbound would slow down.

    Does anyone know what happened to the small dog on the loose going east bound? …guessing it escaped from one of the cars involved in the accident.

      We just got a call from someone who said the dog was rescued by a guy in a Southwest Plumbing truck (the company based in North Delridge), though the caller didn’t know what happened from there. I’m adding to the story and a mention on the Pets page too, just in case. – TR

        The dog jumped out of the car that was upside down. The woman driving that car was pulled out and frantically looking for her dog

    It’s that pesky West Seattle Vortex acting up again!

    Thank you everyone for the posts today!  We were hearing of accident from friends while seeing the posts come in.  Seeing the posts about the dog confirmed it had to be our coworker.  Best news – the dog is safe and reunited.  A special thank you to Sawyer and the guys at Southwest Plumbing!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
