Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff’s Office reports that a multiple-vehicle crash in Burien Monday night (May 13) involving a tow truck with a car and two other cars has sent three to area hospitals.
Two victims – including a 3-year old – were sent to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The adult sent there is in critical condition, and the child has a possible broken leg.
The crash occurred on South 128th Street at 8th Ave South (map below), when a tow truck pulling one vehicle, with another on its bed, crashed with two other vehicles.
Another driver was taken to a local hospital, and the tow truck driver was not injured.
Accident Investigators had just arrived around 7:30 p.m., and there’s no word yet on the cause.
West added that S. 128th will be closed for a couple hours at least from SR-509 and Des Moines Memorial Drive.
