Puget Sound Energy crews were dispatched to the scene but there was no report of a power outage in the area. Hoffman said the power line involved led to one residence adjacent to the crash.

About 1:30pm, while still at the crash scene, WCFD7 aid crews were called back to the Grandview fire station at Grandview Road and Enterprise Road, about 1,000 feet from the crash scene.
