Redmond teen critically injured in bus-car accident

A 16-year-old Redmond girl is in critical condition after crashing her car into a school bus on Tuesday afternoon reports KOMONews.com. The teenager was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. People writing in on the KOMONews comments said the teenager was a Redmond High School student.

The motor vehicle accident occurred in the 4500 block of Sahalee Way Northeast in unincorporated King County after the girl crossed the center line and hit a Lake Washington District school bus head-on. The bus driver, age 46, of Lake Stevens, was not injured and there were no student passengers at the time of the accident.

Police say it is unclear why the girl lost control of her car. She may have had some type of distraction. Photos of her car showed it severely damaged and nearly broken in half. The bus sustained front-end damage on the driver’s side.
