UPDATE: Two crashes – Admiral, Barton

9:20 PM: SPD and SFD are on the way to two crashes: One was dispatched as a “rollover” crash in the 3500 block of SW Admiral Way [map]. The other was dispatched as a driver hitting a parked car in the 3800 block of SW Barton. Avoid those areas for a while.

9:28 PM: SFD has already left the Admiral Way scene, indicating no major injuries there.

9:43 PM: They’ve also cleared the Barton scene.

ADDED SATURDAY MORNING: Thanks to Megan for tweeting this pic from the Admiral scene last night, showing it was more of a “car on side” than “rollover”:

    Not a cat in a tree. Not a bear in a tree. A CAR in a tree. Just drove by the Admiral lookout. How do yo even do this?!!!!!!!

      I live across the street and I’m confused on how this happened as well! I heard the crash, but narrowly missed what happened. It’s hard to see, but they may have hit a car parked on Admiral. If anyone has details, I’m curious. Glad the person driving seemed okay after.

    Yup nothing like a good first rain after a long dry spell to create work for auto body repair shops!

      Thanks for catching that; we don’t always see all the replies/notifications, though I was watching our TL there until ~2 am. Will go back and find it to add to the story for the record!

    Slow the flip down people!

      We don’t know whether speed was a factor. The Admiral crash is simply logged as a “motor vehicle collision” but the call classification for Barton indicates it’s being investigated as a possible DUI.

    Hope the tree is OK.
