SUV on sidewalk after crash across from Jefferson Square

(Texted photo)

Thanks for the tips and photos. Close call in The Junction about an hour ago – what was dispatched as a two-car collision left one of the vehicles up on the sidewalk and against the exterior of Season’s salon on the ground floor of Mural, across 42nd from Jefferson Square.

The other car was a Camry. No serious injuries reported, nor was anyone reported hit on the sidewalk, but we’re following up with SFD to verify.

    Is it implied that the driver (not necessarily owner) of the SUV just walked away?

      No, they remained at the scene, and I just confirmed with SFD that no one was hurt.

    What a relief that the car didn’t go upside down, into the store, over a seawall or onto the beach.  Cars are ending up in lots of strange positions lately.  Glad that no one was hurt.

    There’s a reason that drive through haircuts aren’t very popular.

    This is why I don’t think the sidewalk dining areas are a good idea.

    This is a joke, don’t get your feathers all ruffled up …

    It’s refreshing to see a car smash into a building & the car was NOT STOLEN nor were they trying to crash thru the front door!

    According to the Seattle Times, last year either a car or truck smashed into a building every 3 days. Luckily, in this situation, our sidewalks are under utilized and thus nobody injured.

    This spot is crazy busy and really frustrating to navigate safely, regardless of walking or driving.  I’m not at all surprised something happened, more, I’m surprised it didn’t happen sooner.  I’m glad everyone is okay!

      The main issue at that spot is all of the jaywalkers, coming out of J Square, the walkway from California, the parking garage. I find that actually crossing at a crosswalk takes out all of the guesswork, but a lot of people are way too busy for that!

Sorry, comment time is over.
