Helicopters 5-6am, Monday 2/20 morning?

Any word on why there are a couple of helicopters circling the neighborhood?

EDITOR’S UPDATE: Looks like the choppers were out to cover a fatal motorcycle crash at the I-5/I-90 interchange this morning. It appears a person riding a motorcycle ran into a barrier and fell from a ramp onto I-5 around 4 a.m.

Timothy Richard Wettack, 23, was pronounced dead at the hospital, KIRO reports.

  1. Looks like there was a wreck on I-5 at Yesler around 4am, but other than that it doesn’t seem 911 related. Could always be observing freeway traffic. I’ll keep my eyes peeled and let you know if I find something else.
