SEATTLE, WA — A 20-year-old woman was sent to a hospital Wednesday night after a rollover crash on the north end of Seattle’s 1st Avenue South Bridge that injured three other people, reports West Seattle Blog.

The collision took place on the northbound lanes just north of the exit to South Michigan Street. It was first recorded by the Washington State Department of Transportation at 8:52 p.m.

According to the Seattle Fire Department, crews were initially called to the scene for a “rescue extrication,” after a two-vehicle crash caused one car to flip, but the response was later downsized.

At least one person, a woman believed to be in her 20s, requested transport to a hospital. Three others, including a 26-year-old man, a 44-year-old man, and a 60-year-old man, all received treatment on the scene. The extent of their injuries was not immediately clear, but authorities said all patients were in stable condition.

On Thursday, April 27, the SFD said a firearm was recovered from the rolled vehicle. Its driver, the 26-year-old man, who is a convicted felon, was arrested and booked into jail for unlawful possession of a gun.
