Update: Crash scene cleared on southbound 99

6:44 PM: There’s a heavy-rescue callout on southbound 99 at Lander, and it is reported to be a rollover crash. No other details yet but avoid southbound 99 if you are headed this way.

7:39 PM: Commenters report it’s slow northbound too, going past the crash scene.

9:35 PM: Absent official updates, we drove 99 through this stretch about 15 minutes ago to see if it was clear yet. It is – aside from some police on the right shoulder.

    Just drove by there. It’s right before the bridge exit and there’s only one lane open so it’s kind of a mess.

    Northbound is slightly slow at the scene too – had one lane blocked where the roll over is up against the jersey barrier.

    also a bad accident on 35th by the SW Library. looked really really bad.

      We have that posted separately. Thanks.

    I wonder if the southbound 99 accident caused people to exit and crowd the 1st ave onramp? That could have been why the westbound bridge/viaduct was so slow earlier.

Sorry, comment time is over.
