Update: Van crash at 44th/Alaska (Wells Fargo corner)

This scene should be cleared soon but for the moment, it’s a little slow-going at 44th/Alaska, either westbound on Alaska or northbound on 44th, because a van went up on the sidewalk on the corner at Wells Fargo (background of photo above). It’s about to be towed away – not sure if the building is damaged till we see what happened when the van’s gone; no word of any injuries. (Thanks to everybody who called about this one – 206-293-6302 if news breaks and you’re away from your computer.) 6:16 PM UPDATE: An SDOT worker’s here now; the damage appears to include a knocked-down street sign and fire hydrant, as well as some lost shrubbery.

    Dammit kids! I told you to be quiet back there.

    Hope everyone’s okay.

    You must return here with a shrubbery, or else you will never pass through this wood alive! One that looks nice, and not too expensive.

Sorry, comment time is over.
