    And thanks in turn to Que for the tip – we didn’t see the 911 callout immediately. LMA, that might be a good concern for tonight’s White Center/South Delridge Community Safety Coalition meeting – traffic safety certainly in their purview – 6 pm, 9421 18th SW (see earlier item) – TR

    I drove by this accident right after the authorities arrived and the other car that wasn’t shown in the pic was on it’s side. Looked pretty scary! Someone must have been going pretty fast to knock the car completely on it’s side.

    Whoa! I drive that intersection everyday at that time EXCEPT today when I decided to take a back road to work. Crazy! I can see this happening if someone was trying to turn and was t-boned. I see a bunch of close calls there all the time.
