Deadly Crash in Downtown Seattle

There was a deadly crash in the downtown Seattle area early this morning.  The accident occurred around 4am this morning.  A preliminary investigation found that a speeding car lost control and ran into 3 empty taxis.  The fatal crash happened on the corner of 6th & Union, leaving 1 person dead and 3 people injured.  It is being reported that 2 out of the 3 injured have life threatening injuries.

BREAKING NEWS:  I work on the corner of 6th & Union right where the accident took place.  What I found out from sources (and what the other stations haven't heard or reported yet), is that the reason Union was blocked off for so long was because the scene needed to be thoroughly investigated.  The reason being so is because there were bullet holes found in the side of the crashed car.  I also heard that the driver tried to flee the scene as well as the person found dead on the scene was either decapitated and/or unidentifiable from the accident.  No other information given.
