Seattle Fire responded to a “heavy rescue” incident at the corner of 11th and E Pike Friday morning to find a car had crashed through the security gate in front of Zion’s Gate Records but nobody injured at the scene.
No official word yet on what caused the driver to crash the car on a sunny, quiet morning just before 9:30a in Pike/Pine. Damage was limited to the smashed security fence and the silver car which sustained damage mainly to its right side. Media, fire and police swarmed the scene as a crew put up security tape and mopped up some spilled liquid from the sidewalk. The car was able to be moved from the entrance to the record store shared with retailer 35 North.
We’ll check with SPD to see what else we can learn about the incident in the middle of what will be a bustling part of the neighborhood later in the day.
Meanwhile, the crash wasn’t the only rescue call in the area Seattle Fire was responding to this morning. As the clean-up on E Pike was wrapping up, crews rushed to 30th and Cherry to the scene of this car rollover.
