City leaders pleased with response after truck full of crab tips over, halting traffic on Alaskan Way Viaduct
SEATTLE -- A tractor-trailer full of frozen Alaskan king crab legs crashed and tipped over on the Alaskan Way Viaduct, shutting down a part of the highway for hours and spilling boxes of the seafood onto the street below. No one was injured. It’s not a scene drivers see every day. Seattle Police say the truck driver traveling north on State Route 99 lost control and tipped his trailer on its side around 2:30 p.m., damaging a guardrail and taking out a light pole.
