3:26 PM: Big Seattle Fire “rescue extrication” response is headed to a crash scene at 8th and Roxbury [map], with one car reported to be “on fire.” Avoid the area. Updates to come.
3:32 PM: No one’s trapped, so the response is being reduced slightly, but traffic is still being blocked around the scene, including on the unincorporated-area side south of the intersection. Three people are reported hurt, none with life-threatening injuries.
3:43 PM: Photo added above. That’s the southeast corner of 8th/Roxbury.
3:48 PM: Added another photo. Seattle and King County responders are both working on this. SPD has 8th closed about half a block north, KCSO has it closed about half a block south, and Roxbury is closed at the intersection. Of the injured people, two – male and female – were taken by medic unit to Harborview, while the third with less-serious injuries, male, was taken to a hospital by private ambulance. Investigators are still sorting out how this happened.
5 PM: Metro says buses are back to their regular routing on Roxbury, which indicates the intersection has at least partly reopened.
