Update: According to the SPD, this appears to have been a single-vehicle rollover accident, possibly with alcohol as a factor. It was called in at about 8:05pm Friday and both police and the fire department responded. The vehicle knocked down a red light post and a bus stop sign before colliding with the City Light pole on the corner of 15th and Beacon. Upon arriving, the vehicle was found upside-down with the driver inside. The driver was safely removed and taken to the hospital for examination and a blood draw. There were no passengers and apparently no other injuries or vehicles directly damaged. SPD’s Traffic Collision Investigation Squad’s investigation is still underway.
