TRAFFIC ALERT: Crash at California/Fauntleroy

4:19 PM: If you’re headed to or from Morgan Junction, the California/Fauntleroy intersection has trouble in just about every direction because of a crash. No word yet on injuries. More to come.

4:27 PM UPDATE: We’ve added a photo of one of the two cars involved – it’s still facing the wrong way in the northbound lanes and police tell us a tow truck might still be half an hour away. The other car is north of the bus stop. Vehicles are getting through in part by using the center lane.

    The accident happened around 3:45 just north of Morgan. As of 4:20 (coming back from SoDo), the backup isn’t so bad.i did, however, see a Chevy Tahoe sit on a green arrow until it turned yellow and then make himself the only car to get through the light. Real classy driving out there tonight.

    The SB99 lane blocked by Atlantic has metro busses stacked up on 3rd and Columbia St, as well as traffic/cars. Be aware if you’re trying to take a bus to west Seattle…this C line ride has been 40 minutes and counting from downtown!

      Yikes. Not even on 911 and I haven’t seen a Metro alert. Thanks.

    I have zip, zero, nada problem leaning on my horn when someone sits at a light paying more attention to their phone than the surroundings. Don’t worry pal, the light can count cars. It’s not on a timer or anything.
