TCIS Investigating Monday Morning Crash

SPD Traffic Collision investigators were called to the scene of a two-vehicle crash in West Seattle this morning after a driver suffered a medical emergency and collided with another motorist.

The two drivers were headed northbound on 59 Avenue SW at SW Horton Street just before 9:30 AM when the driver of the trailing vehicle suffered a medical emergency, causing him to crash into the vehicle in front of him.

Both vehicles went over an embankment, knocking down a power pole. Wires from the downed pole struck two members of a road crew working on the block. The workers suffered only minor injuries.

The driver suffering from the medical issue and his passenger were transported to the hospital for medical treatment.
