    Reinforcements coming over the bridge now…

    Glad they’re okay. I’m wondering how one experiences a car-on-side crash in a residential neighborhood…

      That is the million dollar question, HOW…but deep down inside we all know why it happens and we must play nice on our comments. But also as Marcus states it could just be that darn WS Vortex or the big magnet under our WS roadways!

    That my friend K, is the West Seattle Vortex.  The Vortex is not stationary as it travels around West Seattle and strikes like a python. Thought the Vortex was on vacation but it seems to be back home again.

      Or, less humorously, they’re putting lives at risk by driving recklessly or inattentively. These crashes are not Acts of God. They’re dangerous, deadly and preventable.

    Wouldn’t be a week in West Seattle without a car on its side or upside down.  Extra credit for taking out a telephone poll and power transformer.

Sorry, comment time is over.
