If you’re in or around Highland Park, you might have heard/seen the response to this about an hour ago – what was briefly a “heavy rescue” call in the 1700 block of SW Holden (just a block west of Fire Station 11). We don’t have many details, but apparently this car collided with a second one (which was visible nearby and did not appear seriously damaged), went through a fence and into the stoop/front corner of a house. This was the second car-hits-house crash in West Seattle in a week; we covered one at 34th/Trenton last Thursday afternoon. SFD spokesperson Lt. Sue Stangl says their medic units were not used to transport anyone, but isn’t sure if a private ambulance might have been called. 9:27 AM: Just talked with SPD, but the report’s still being written, so we don’t know the circumstances, or whether anyone was cited. We’ll check back later.
