Two off-duty paramedics performed CPR on a woman involved in a multi-vehicle crash Tuesday morning in Seattle. Firefighters had to pry the woman out of her car.
Three vehicles were involved in the crash at 15th Avenue West and West Garfield Street, just east of the Magnolia Bridge, around 6:30 a.m.
Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore said a 50-year-old woman was trapped in a white Subaru. The first two people on the scene – off-duty paramedics, one of whom is a firefighter – performed CPR on the woman.
Firefighters had to cut off the roof and the steering column to get her out. She was transported to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.
The driver of a red Jeep that rolled over managed to get himself out through the sunroof. The 40-year-old was found wandering through the crowd of onlookers. He was taken to Harborview in serious condition along with three other people. Their conditions were not known.
A black Audi was also involved in the crash, but it had the least amount of damage.
It’s not immediately clear what led to the crash. Garfield was closed for the investigation, but buses were being allowed through. Download the Seattle Traffic App
