Wrong Way Crash Closes Northbound Viaduct

Detectives are investigating after a car crashed into an oncoming traffic along the northbound lanes of the viaduct early Friday morning.

Officers were dispatched to the collision just after 2:30 AM when a car was apparently traveling south in the northbound lanes.  It appears the car struck a motorcycle throwing the 55-year-old cyclist off their bike causing life-threatening injuries.  The rider was rushed to Harborview Medical Center where they remain at this time. Detectives are working to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in this collision.

Drivers are asked to be patient as we work to open the road opened quickly.

The information in this post is preliminary and will be updated as we get more.
