UPDATE: ‘Heavy rescue’ callout in North Admiral for collision of Amazon Fresh truck and SUV

6:26 PM: Most of the units sent on what was originally a “heavy rescue” callout at 44th and Massachusetts have been canceled, but we’re still on our way to find out about the crash, which is reported to involve a delivery truck.

6:44 PM: The driver has been taken to the hospital by private ambulance, indicating non-life-threatening injuries. We’ve added a photo of the damaged truck.

7:46 PM: Two more photos added, from WSB’s Christopher Boffoli, including one showing the SUV that was the other vehicle involved in the crash. The “heavy rescue” callout was made initially because the driver’s-side damage on the Amazon Fresh truck had led to concern the driver might be trapped.

    I am waiting for an AmazonFresh delivery.  Now I am worried about the driver!  I hope he or she is OK.

    While I was out there I got an earful from some of the neighbors who live nearby.  They said that Massachusetts has become a real problem with speeding and traffic, especially on weekends when people use it to bypass all of the traffic on Alki.  Not to mention people blowing through four way intersections that are sans stop signs.

    Well, got this message.  And I know exactly what caused it.


    We’re contacting you about your AmazonFresh order #xxx-xxxxx-xxxxx. We recently learned that due to unforeseen circumstances on the road, your order cannot be delivered and has been cancelled.

      I use them too, I’m surprised by that. You would think they could get someone out there to finish the deliveries, that’s A lot of goods that could go bad.

    Hope everyone is un-hurt..

    I can’t tell by the intersection, but it looks like some one failed to yield to the person on the right. You can figure it out with your hands,,,

    There are a lot of busy roads in WS neighborhoods and people who don’t yield correctly or slow down at uncontrolled intersections. Massachusetts is just one of many.

    @TS, Massachusetts is worse than many other roads in summer because it leads directly to Bonair, which is a shortcut to Alki.  We are on 47th, which is another road that leads directly to Bonair.  You can tell who’s not local by watching the way they speed and blow through the unmarked intersections (often with loud music blasting out of open windows).

    One end of Bonair should be shut off in summer

Sorry, comment time is over.
