Vehicle Collision-driver in serious condition

On 2/25/2011 at approximately 1:09 a.m., a vehicle was traveling northbound on 15 AV NE and failed to stop for a clearly marked and posted road closed sign and barrier at NE 104th ST.

The vehicle proceeded through the barrier and traveled approximately 200 feet before striking a parked construction truck and bridging equipment.  The driver, a man in his 20’s was pinned in the vehicle and unconscious as officers and fire personnel arrived.

Seattle Fire extricated the driver by cutting off the roof of the car.  The driver was stabilized at the scene and transported to Harborview Medical Center by Medic 1.  The driver had an odor of alcohol on his person so a DUI officer responded to Harborview Medical Center to process him.

Traffic Collision Investigators responded and processed the scene.
