Woman in serious condition after downtown Seattle car crash
A woman in her 30s was in serious condition after a vehicle accident near 4th Avenue and Virginia Street in Seattle Sunday afternoon.
The impact from a collision with a sedan threw the Toyota Highlander the woman was driving on its side into a parked car. Witnesses said a group of about 30 people tried unsuccessfully to push the car back up.
Seattle firefighters eventually lifted a male passenger in stable condition out of a window and sliced the roof off the vehicle to rescue the woman, who was stuck underneath the steering column with a head injury. Both were taken to Harborview Medical Center.
A man and woman in the other car stopped at the scene and declined medical attention. The Seattle Police Department is still investigating what caused the accident.
