TRAFFIC ALERT: Another West Seattle Bridge crash

7:10 PM: Another crash toward the west end of the eastbound West Seattle Bridge. This one has just been dispatched as a rollover, “on its top,” so SFD is sending a “rescue extrication” response. If you have to use the bridge, avoid that end for a while.

7:14 PM: Police are closing the eastbound Fauntleroy entrance to the bridge because of the crash. No injuries reported so far.

7:39 PM: The incident log shows all SFD units have now closed out their part of the call. SDOT’s live camera at 35th/Fauntleroy shows the eastbound bridge entrance is still closed.

7:52 PM: Now reopened.

    Honestly, I think something spilled on the roadway. I was leaving WS after the earlier accident, and was slowing down as I approached it in the inside lane, but then had no control over brakes or steering. I ended up hitting the jersey barrier just uphill of the car that was stopped behind the three cars in the accident. Luckily, I didn’t hit the car in front of me, and wasn’t going terribly fast at that point.

    Water on pavement mixed with a bit of oil = less traction!  Or per the thesaurus Car Body Repair Shop Employment Security.

    Never once have I seen a driver do the speed limit on that bridge. It’s either full throttle or full brake always, no exception.

      Not to mention the entitled that squirt from lane to lane without signaling.
