Update: No serious injuries in crash with 2 trucks, 1 motorcycle

4:37 PM: Police and fire are responding to a “heavy rescue” call at 8th and Roxbury (map) – reporting two vehicles and one motorcycle involved. One of the vehicles is described via scanner as “on its side.” The motorcyclist is described as “walking around” but we haven’t heard the condition of people in the two vehicles. On our way.

4:44 PM: Two private ambulances were called for people involved in the crash – but medic crews report via the scanner that the people are “refusing transport,” so the ambulances have been canceled. A tow truck is being called for the vehicle that’s on its side. Also hearing via scanner that 8th north of Roxbury is closed, so buses are being rerouted.

4:59 PM: Our crew at the scene says that while 8th is blocked by one of the vehicles – which are both pickup trucks – traffic is getting through both ways on Roxbury.

    Lots of sirens heading that way! Hope everyone’s ok!

    Ladder 11 just headed back down 35th Ave SW after flying up the street a few moments ago. Must not have needed them. Hope all involved are ok.

      The heavy rescue aspect was canceled fairly quickly. Apparently no one needed to be extricated – and no one in the end even needed to be transported. Always glad when something turns out less serious than feared.

    LOTS of accidents at that intersection. The signals choices for it are stupid. Glad everyone is ok though.

    WSB: do you know the cause of the accident? There is no left turn signal on either direction of 8th SW, I am wondering if this could have been prevented if this busy intersection had left turn signals in all directions.

    ROLLOVER. Seriously what’s with all the rollover accidents in WS?

Sorry, comment time is over.
