That was KIRO 7’s chopper overhead around 5 o’clock tonight, after reports of a car vs. bike accident right in front of the Greenwood Post Office at North 83rd Street and Greenwood Avenue North.
We’ve got a call into the Seattle Fire Department for more information, and we’ll update this post when we know more.
SFD Spokesman Kyle Moore tells us that a 29-year-old woman was riding her bike on Greenwood Avenue North when someone opened their car door and hit her. Moore said the woman had only minor injuries — thanks to her helmet — and was taken to the hospital by AMR.
Thanks to Lisa and Lynn for the tips, and Lynn for the photo!
