ORIGINAL POST

Coming from the south? Expect major traffic slowdowns getting into Seattle this morning after a rollover crash on northbound Highway 99.

The 6:30 a.m. crash at South Lander Street has blocked all of the lanes on 99 and some of the southbound lanes are also impacted, according to police.  There’s a report of an injury, but no details have been released.

“Northbound is pretty much a parking lot,” said Seattle police spokesman Mark Jamieson.

King County Metro has rerouted buses, according to Twitter.
