The Garfield High School’s girls softball team was involved in a bus crash in the Washington Park Arboretum as they were returning from a game in Kirkland, Washington reported The Seattle Times. Of the 22 students, coach and driver on board, five were taken by ambulance to Harborview Medical Center with neck and back injuries reported the Seattle Fire Department. Later, the remaining passengers were later taken by charter bus to Harborview for evaluation. No serious injuries were reported.
The accident occurred when the private charter bus operated by Journey Lines tried to drive under a 9-foot underpass in the 2100 block of Lake Washington Boulevard East. The bus is 11 feet 8 inches tall. The driver apparently ignored a sign on the overpass that warned of “low clearance. ”
The girls reported that glass rained down on them. The roof of the bus was badly damaged and several windows were shattered.
