UPDATE: Another West Seattle Bridge crash: 2 cars, westbound

1:32 PM: Even as crews continue repairing the jersey barrier damaged by this morning’s dump truck crash, there’s a new collision on the WB bridge, a bit east of the earlier crash. Two vehicles reported involved. The dispatch was briefly upgraded to a rescue response but the driver who was believed trapped “got out on her own.”

1:52 PM: SFD has cleared the scene but as this crash also involved a barrier impact, cameras show the inside lane blocked in both directions right now.

    I wonder if the diesel fuel from that dump truck wreck had anything to do with it?

      No, the diesel fuel was on the west half of the bridge. These crashes were on the east half (other side of the bridge peak).

        Guy could very well be right. This is from WSB report on the dump truck crash. “Per radio communication, one complicating factor right now is diesel fuel in the eastbound lanes at the scene.”
