They confirm no serious injuries, no one taken to the hospital. Highland Park Way is closed at the crash scene right now.

      This unofficial tool pulls data from SDOT which is from the SPD and WSDOT reports.   http://seattlecollisions.timganter.io/collisions

    SDOT tracks all collisions that get reported. You can request historical data.
