One-vehicle collision with life-threatening injuries

On May 24th at approximately 12:16 a.m. officers responded to reports of a one-vehicle collision in the area of 32nd Avenue NW and NW 54th Street.  Preliminary investigation indicates that a late model Honda Accord driven by a female in her late teens to early twenties was traveling southbound on 32nd Avenue NW.  For reasons yet to be determined, the driver collided into the metal gates at the Ballard Locks. 

SFD responded to the scene and had to extricate the driver from the Honda due to the damage the vehicle sustained in the collision.  SFD medics subsequently transported the female driver to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. 

The driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle.  It is unknown at this time if alcohol and/or drugs contributed to the collision. 

Traffic Collision Investigation Squad detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
