SEATTLE — A pedestrian was rescued Wednesday morning after she was trapped under an overturned semi-truck near Seattle’s Judkins Park neighborhood.
The Seattle Fire Department (SFD) said a tractor-trailer truck with two trailers was turning left from S. Dearborn Street onto northbound Rainer Avenue S when the rear trailer overturned.
A 67-year-old was trapped and pinched under the trailer, according to the SFD. The emergency services were able to free the woman safely. She was transported to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.
Another pedestrian — a woman in her 70s — was injured when she jumped out of the way of the trailer, according to firefighters. She was also transported to Harborview Medical Center in stable condition.
SFD said crews checked under the trailer but found no other patients. They have stabilized the trailer and are waiting for a tow truck to right the trailer and remove it from the area.
Rainier Avenue S is closed to traffic as crews work at the scene. Motorists are asked to look for an alternative route.
