1 Killed, 2 Injured in Seattle, WA, Ambulance Accident on I-5

Seattle, WA -- January 11, 2017, one person was killed, two EMTs injured, following an accident where a wrong-way SUV on I-5 hit an ambulance head-on.

Seattle Police investigated the fatal accident which occurred 2:00 a.m. near the intersection of I-5 and Michigan Street.

Preliminary investigations indicate that an SUV somehow entered the wrong lanes of I-5. In doing so, it crossed paths with an oncoming ambulance carrying two EMTs. The two vehicles crashed head-on into each other.

The driver of the SUV, identified only as a 46-year-old, died at the scene of the accident. The two EMTs were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
