5:29 PM: Thanks to those who texted to report a crash at Delridge and Dakota (map), blocking southbound Delridge, reportedly involving a bicycle and car. We’re en route to check.
5:43 PM: Police are still at the scene, toward the side of the southbound lane; traffic is getting through both ways. More on the people involved as soon as we talk with them.
5:55 PM: We’ve just confirmed with police at the scene that a woman was seriously injured and taken to the hospital. She was riding a bike that collided with a car whose driver is still in the car so far as we can tell.
The SPD unit that investigates major collisions is here.
6:15 PM: If you are approaching this part of Delridge any time in the next few hours, please go very slowly and carefully – while as we noted, traffic is currently going through in both directions, police have to do their work in the street, to take measurements and other assessments to figure out what happened. We have seen some southbound bicycle riders divert westbound on Dakota to get around the scene.
7:30 PM: Via the scanner, we’ve just heard that investigators have finished their work at the scene. No new information on the victim’s condition.
MONDAY AFTERNOON: We’re still trying to find out more information. We have learned a little from SFD, whose spokesperson Kyle Moore says the victim is in her 30s and was in critical condition when transported from the scene Friday – unconscious and not breathing when medics first found her, but she had a pulse, and Moore says they “assisted her with breathing.”
