The crash that crunched the commute

One wrecked motorcycle, two hurt people, four-plus hours of commute-tastrophe on The Bridge. If you got caught up in it yesterday afternoon/evening, you might be interested in the semi-witness account posted here.

    Nice to see there are still a few people who care….pity the motorcyclist didn’t give as much thought to others and have to say i’m glad they’re the ones in hospital not other road users. Can they be sent a nice bill for all the emergency crews/cops etc that had to attend??

    Very glad to hear that this wasn’t a fatality accident – from the rush & number of Emergency personnel, I thought for sure someone didn’t make it.

    Yep, speed and inattentiveness in many, many ways.

    Not to mention alcohol from his account.

    anybody know who’s riding with the big fancy motorcade heading into west seattle as i’m writing this?

    I’m glad it wasn’t a fatality. Alcohol or not, I see way too many motorcyclists weaving in and out of traffic heavy traffic most everyday. I don’t like to see anyone get hurt, but its really hard to have much sympathy for them when they drive in such a reckless manner.

    r@d@r — wondering that myself — they just passed on Calif. Avenue, had both directions shut down, think it’s just practice though……..

    it’s sh*t-for-brains motorcyclists like THOSE jerks that give the rest of us a bad name. Glad they ain’t dead..but I hope they’ve learned SOMETHING.

    I’m not very good about keeping my opinions quiet :)’re welcome. Ride safely.

    I didn’t actually realize you’d make a post about it. And now I’m embarrassed since the formatting didn’t go through when I had posted it.

    Just read in the West Seattle Herald’s police blotter that Seattle DOT employees found part of the guy’s leg in eastbound lanes after the accident had cleared. He suffered a ‘serious leg injury’ – no doubt.

Sorry, comment time is over.
