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.
