A motorcyclist who fell about 30 feet from Interstate 5 and into a patch of bushes has been taken to Harborview Medical Center.
The motorcyclist suffered a dislocated left shoulder and a knee injury, according to the Seattle Fire Department. The accident occurred at 11:08 a.m. at the Swift Avenue South/South Albro Place exit off I-5 north in Seattle.
Seattle Fire spokesman Kyle Moore said it took rescue crews 20 minutes to lift the man onto the roadway. He said crews used a ladder truck equipped with a rescue backboard called a “Stokes” basket.
“He went over the guard rail, fell 30 feet and landed on sticker bushes. He’s going to be fine. It’s a good day for him,” Moore said.
Moore did not know if the man’s motorcycle went over the guard rail as well.
