A blue Honda driven by a 20-year-old woman is barely recognizable after it collided with a flat-bed tow truck and a black sedan in Burien Monday afternoon.
The driver was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition along with her passenger, her 3-year-old child, who suffered a broken leg, said King County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Sgt. Cindi West.
West said the man driving the black sedan spoke to law enforcement and then was driven by a friend to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. The tow-truck driver was unharmed.
It’s hard to tell what happened at the intersection of South 128th Street and Eighth Avenue South or who was at fault, West said, because crash investigators have had conflicting reports from witnesses about what happened. Detectives will be studying the intersection for a couple more hours before it opens again.
“It’s a pretty messy scene and it’s going to take a while to piece it together,” West said.
