Description/crash info…
Pedestrians and motorists try to go about their day after a rare Seattle ice storm. The fire department responded to a multi vehicle crash at 1st Avenue and Blanchard Street around 10am Friday. At least one person called 911 and said someone was pinned between vehicles, resulting in about a dozen fire and police units being dispatched. It took several minutes for firefighters to walk and slide onto the scene of 4-6 crashed vehicles. Once the first-arriving firefighters confirmed no one was pinned, the other fire department units still responding were called off and put back in service. Thankfully no one was pinned or hurt.
