Traffic-alert update: SB I-5 fully reopened after incident by West Seattle Bridge exit

7:48 PM: There’s an emergency response on southbound I-5 just before the West Seattle Bridge exit. Two people have texted saying it appeared to involve someone on foot or who fell/got out of a vehicle. That’s all we have for now; if you have to head this way, use another route TFN.

9:34 PM: The scene is cleared, according to this tweet from a State Patrol spokesperson:

SIDE NOTE: Not related but while we are talking about traffic – remember that Northbound 99 closes for the weekend at 10 pm, with lane realignment and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon happening during the closure.

    I witnessed the accident and someone opened the door and fell out of the truck. Very scary. Drive safe.

    My daughter saw it happen; there was a truck with it’s flashers on, and a pedestrian on the side (driver) Jeep with woman driver hit him while he was the side of the road and the pedestrian went flying up in the air. She could not figure out how the women hit him. Many people pulled over to call 911, although no one was giving CPR.

    AJ not even close to what happened. I was first on scene. He jumped. Aid was given after scene was cleared and safe. Many of us passing by were trained

    MS, glad you were there and knew what to do. I saw him in the road and had no idea how to help. If anyone knows any more – did he survive? – please post updates, thanks.
