West Seattle, Washington
3:50 PM: If you’re headed for Morgan Junction from points south, note that northbound traffic is being detoured at Graham because of the crash in our photo. No injuries reported.
4:07 PM: The street’s clear now.
Owie. Didn’t see it, but if either one of those was taking a “U” turn then tough luck. I see that illegal maneuver done all the time on California and it is dangerous. I hope that wasn’t the case, and I hope all are okay. Let’s slow it down, folks.
Trying to find out the suspected circumstances but police are busy talking to the sideways car’s driver. Patrick just happened onto this while heading down to cover the new Morgan trick-or-treat event (next story).
Chuck, unfortunately u-turns are legal, assuming they can be made safely and without interfering with other traffic and not within 500 feet of a crest or hill. Of course, many people don’t abide by those rules. My personal favorite is the 5-point u-turns from the drivers who don’t know how to maneuver their car. It’s like a short auto theater.
The sideways car was headed north on California and clipped the car that was parked behind the hit car. Somehow it spun around and crashed into the side of the hit car. Folks at West Seattle Coworking had a front seat to the action – we missed the how but the loud crash certainly got our attention!
driving was especially awful this afternoon – everyone was in a massive hurry, worse than normal. saw a 5 car accident near northgate, just before someone came lurching out of a parking lot and nearly broad-sided me. its “just” Halloween, folks, calm the heck down.
Its scary, rain and dark are right around the corner. Please do not create work for auto body shops!
On the bright side, this driver won’t be inducted into the “West Seattle I Flipped My Car Club. 👍🏻
Sorry, comment time is over.
