WSP Seeks Witnesses to Incident on I-5 in Seattle

King County -- The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is seeking witnesses to an incident in which a pedestrian, from a disabled vehicle, fell over a cement barrier, landing on concrete below the freeway.

On June 5, 2016 at approximately 11:17 pm, WSP dispatch received a call from a subject stating that his 30 year old girlfriend had fallen over a barrier, SB I-5 just north of the exit to the West Seattle Freeway. The boyfriend stated that he was called by his girlfriend to assist with her silver 2001 Volkswagen (pictured below), which had become disabled along the freeway. When arriving, he noticed her lying unconscious on cement approximately 40 feet below where her vehicle was parked.
