UPDATE: Car-on-side crash in southeast West Seattle

3:57 PM: Big Seattle Fire response on the way to 1st Ave. S. and Myers Way S. [map] SFD says the report is a crash involving a vehicle on its side in the northbound lanes.

4 PM: SFD says extrication isn’t needed after all and has downsized the call. Avoid the area for a while, though.

4:18 PM: Added a photo of the scene – no sidewalks, no place to pull over, so that’s as close as our crew could get. One NB lane is getting by (downhill) and the SB (uphill) lanes are unaffected.

4:50 PM: Just went back to check – scene’s now completely clear.

    Just heads up , in case you’re trying to set your goal. This does not qualify to be in the elite of West Seattle. You must be completely upside down.

    Is there a way to report a repave need of Olson/Myers way? I can’t drive up that without fishtailing any time it rains, to the point of putting vehicle in 4×4 to make it up that hill. There were several accidents there this spring too.

    I think they leave the road that way hoping it’ll keep people from driving so fast…that’s all I can think is their reason!?!?!?!?

Sorry, comment time is over.
