Collision in Sodo Neighborhood Snarls Traffic in Seattle

A major collision at East Marginal Way S and S Nevada St sent three people to the hospital and shut down State Route -99 through Seattle for hours.

Just before 2 pm on Tuesday afternoon police and firefighters responded to a two vehicle collision in the SODO area.  A car traveling north on E Marginal Way South crossed the centerline, colliding with a south-bound car.  Three people were transported to Harborview Medical Center with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The location and seriousness of the collision necessitated the closure of SR-99. The Traffic Collision Investigation Squad responded and is leading the ongoing investigation.

Around 7:30 pm SR-99  was reopened for traffic. The closure in combination with the weekday commute and a baseball game led difficult traffic throughout the city.
