On 8/28/09, just shortly after 3:00 a.m., witnesses observed a vehicle  westbound on the West Seattle bridge at a high rate of speed. The vehicle swerved and struck the north side jersey barrier and then deflected across to the south side barrier. After striking the south side barrier the vehicle tumbled and came to a rest on its tires facing westbound. The driver and sole occupant was unresponsive and was not wearing a seatbelt. Seattle Fire Department responded and worked on the driver before transporting him to Harborview Medical Center. At HMC the driver died from his injuries. Traffic Collsion Investigators responded and processed the scene.

The driver is a male 27-years-old.
