UPDATE: Crash on westbound West Seattle Bridge

12:27 PM: The response to that crash on the westbound West Seattle Bridge near 1st Avenue S. has just been upgraded to “rescue extrication” and that half of the bridge is being closed at the scene.

12:31 PM: Firefighters have extricated one person from the wrecked vehicle and SFD says she is in “stable condition.”

12:35 PM: As this SDOT camera view looking westward shows, one eastbound lane is blocked too:

12:45 PM: One westbound lane is now open.

1 PM: SDOT cameras now show only the inside westbound lane is blocked; other lanes have reopened.

1:15 PM: All cleared.

    Daylight and dry conditions!  Hopefully no serious injuries.

    I saw that car with the top sheared off. Thank God the Fire Dept did it.

    Hopefully everyone is going to be ok.  That does not look good

    I hope she is okay.  Is there an update? I was inching by the accident when they we taking her out of the car.  Scary!

      I did not have time to follow up with SFD so I don’t even know the victim’s age but her injuries as described on emergency radio were definitely not major-sounding.
