From the PI online this morning:
Crash shuts down West Seattle Bridge
By HECTOR CASTRO
Three people were killed on the West Seattle Bridge when the vehicle they were riding in rolled, crashed and burst into flames.
The accident happened at 2:47 a.m. this morning, prompting Seattle police to close the bridge to traffic until at least 9 a.m., police spokesman Rich Pruitt said.
The vehicle, reported as a Toyota Scion, was driving eastbound on the freeway when it lost control at the exit onto northbound Highway 99, Pruitt said.
The vehicle hit a barrier, burst into flames, then struck a middle lane divider.Seattle firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the blaze, but found all three people inside dead at the scene.
Police are advising motorists to use alternate routes because traffic collision investigators will have the bridge closed as they gather evidence from the crash site. Any witnesses to the accident are urged to contact Seattle police traffic investigators at 206-684-8923.
What is going on with the West Seattle Bridge? There has been a lot of bad juju lately. It makes me think twice about driving that way to work, but there really is no other way to get there.
I wonder if the accident was caused by kids trying to do "Tokyo Drift?" So sad.
