Anyone driving by the Madrona Business District last night saw the Seattle Police block off the westbound lane of 34th Avenue as they cleared a three car accident. One person was taken to the hospital for what was believed to be minor injuries, but it could have been a lot worse. From what I could gather, a car traveling westbound on Pike Street failed to yield to oncoming traffic when they tried to cross 34th Avenue. When they did a car driving along 34th Avenue hit them which caused them to slam into the back of a parked Subaru station wagon. The parked station wagon had its back tailgate open because minutes prior to the crash the new commercial tenants at Pike Station had unloaded a table from the back of the Subaru. The new tenants would have been seriously injured if the accident had happened just minutes earlier. The tenants, a travel website for outdoor adventures, got a memorable “welcome” to Madrona but thankfully it came without injury.
