Around 4:30PM, January 2, 2019, emergency crews responded to a serious, four-car accident on westbound I-90 near the SR 18 interchange.

The accident – near milepost 26 – left a white sedan wedged between two other vehicles, with the back of the vehicle destroyed.

Firefighters from Eastside Fire & Rescue, Bellevue and Snoqualmie Fire Departments responded to the scene. One person was found unconscious and trapped in the severely damaged sedan. Hydraulic extrication tools were used to remove the driver, who was then transported to Haborview Medical Center.
