2:18 AM: Police have been on both sides of Longfellow Creek at SW Yancy for about an hour now, after a pickup truck went into the creek, crashing through the wooden railing at the dead end on the west side, right by the West Seattle Health Club parking lot.
Two people were in the truck, and one was treated for facial injuries.
A tow truck was on scene to get the truck out of the creek, which looked to be a challenge in terms of preventing further damage to the bridge. We’ll be going back to check.
