talk about your lost highways.

THERE ARE CARS GOING THE WRONG WAY ON THE FRICKIN 405!

There was apparently a really huge and probably fatal accident just beyond Exit 1 on 405 northbound. There's like 20 cop cars down there: state patrol, sheriff, some other unmarked.

At some point just south of the accident site, a cop car is parked sideways blocking off half the northbound side.

And then another cop is directing the backed up traffic -- to TURN AROUND and head the WRONG WAY down the right lane, down into the ONRAMP from the West Valley Highway. Likewise the traffic south of that exit is being directed into the exit (so you have cars going from the interstate into both the offramp AND the onramp, merging together).

It just looks all wrong.

KOMO says the massive accident involved "serious injury" and may have involved "intoxicants".

(and entirely by coincidence, due to the westbound side of I-90 being blocked off for road work, a portion of the westbound traffic is being re-threaded onto half of the EASTBOUND side of I-90, with impromptu lanes paved across the median.)
