Car crashes into Big Fish building on Elliott

Posted on July 27th, 2011 by Editor


A car ran through a planting strip, over a sidewalk and off an embankment this afternoon, smashing into a building at 333 Elliott Ave W., the home of Seattle-based Big Fish Games in Lower Queen Anne.

Though there is no official word yet on what caused the crash, the driver of the black Honda sedan was reportedly not injured in the incident.

A witness snapped this photo of the crash, and said this about the incident: “Excitement at my work… driver falls asleep, crosses 2 lanes of oncoming traffic, and crashes car into one of our buildings.” Whether or not driver did in fact fall asleep at the wheel is unknown at this time. We’re waiting on a call back from the Seattle Police Department’s public information officer for details.

* Thanks to Jai for forwarding along the photo!

    Thankfully, many of my co-workers were in a meeting when this car came crashing in a section over from me and nobody was hurt. The driver was okay as well, he got up out of the car before any assistance arrived.

    Thankfully, the guard rail and ditch prevented the car from doing any real damage and nobody was hurt.

  • Hi Non Witness,

    SPD’s PIO never did call me back. I’ll see if I can get in touch with them today.

    Thanks for reading!

    I think we should ban all cars from the road until drivers learn to obey the law.
