Update on bridge crash

Bad accident, involving two motorcycles, west end of westbound, between Admiral exit and “Walking on Logs.” 3:45 PM UPDATE: Our traffic spotter just went by in the other direction and says eastbound is open, though busy, but the high bridge westbound is COMPLETELY closed just past the Admiral/Avalon exit, so if you’re heading west, you have to get off there. If you have to get to south West Seattle, get off sooner – take the Delridge exit – or take the low bridge.

    this happened an hour ago according to the Seattle Times but the traffic cams look totally fine… hopefully traffic won’t be that bad and the people involved aren’t hurt.

    The bridge is a mess heading up the hill (you actually can’t head up the hill).

    From the P-I:

    “Seattle Department of Transportation spokesman Casey Hanewall said the lanes would be blocked until about 7:30 p.m. while police investigate.”

    The lower bridge is going to be a backed up mess too… There were tons of traffice headed off of the bridge onto the Avalon Way/Harbor Ave exit, and Avalon looked jam packed when I was headed home a little over half an hour ago. I wound up going up Admiral Way, and then back down California to get home.

    There was only one motorcycle involved in the accident, a driver with a passenger, the driver had been drinking and was weaving between cars when he lost control on the turn, driver suffered cuts to his left leg and maybe back injuries, while the passenger had a severe injury on the right leg (not sure what else).

Sorry, comment time is over.
