west seattle bridge closed

According to the driver of the bus I just left, there was a fatality accident on the West Seattle Bridge this morning around 3 a.m. and the bridge has been closed ever since. So traffic is correspondingly crazy, for those of you who have a commute involving this part of town.

It was past my meeting's start and my 55 was nowhere to be seen, so I just grabbed the first bus that came by (which happened to be a 21) and came back home.

Update: the story as told by the Seattle P.I. which claims the bridge will most likely be closed until at least 9 a.m.
