Heat wave causes road to buckle in South Seattle

Jun 13, 2019 at 11:27 AM CST

Temperature soaring well into the 90s Wednesday was too much for a portion of the road at 4th Ave South at South Industrial Way, which buckled to the heat, officials say. It was bad timing for a 44-year-old woman, who sustained minor injuries after driving onto the buckled road and crashing her car, according to first responders.
