Seattle, WA—A three-vehicle crash left two adults and two children battling for their lives when two vans struck the vehicle they were traveling in. The violent collision occurred near Seattle Pratt Park around 11:17 a.m., at the intersection of 20th Avenue South and South Main Street, as reported by The Seattle Times.
According to police officials, a small compact sedan was driving northbound on 20th Avenue South, when a westbound full-size van struck the sedan on the driver’s side of the vehicle. The impact swung the car around only to be hit again by a southbound minivan. The intersection where the collision took place was reportedly an “uncontrolled intersection,” which means there were no traffic signals or signs to direct traffic.

Two children and two adults were rushed to local hospitals for treatment of their life-threatening injuries. The victim’s identities, ages, and genders are currently being withheld by police officials. The drivers of the vans involved in the collision were not injured.
