UPDATE: 3 taken to hospital after one-car Highland Park crash

4:22 AM: Another sizable response to a crash scene – this time, one vehicle is reported to have hit a tree in the 9000 block of Henderson Place (map) in Highland Park, with two people reported to be trapped. Both are reported to be conscious.

5:04 AM: Just back from the scene. The response was upgraded to “heavy rescue” while we were en route – second one of the night in West Seattle. Firefighters cut the driver out of the car, a 22-year-old man who medics took to Harborview.

Two others were hurt but got themselves out of the car, according to SFD, and were taken to the hospital by private ambulance. The road will be closed both ways at the crash scene while the investigation proceeds.

6:30 AM: Henderson Place is still blocked off at the crash scene; use 9th SW instead.

3:17 PM: Police confirm they are investigating the possibility of DUI.
