University of Washington student, a recent Bellevue High grad, killed by bus

The Seattle Times reports that Chase Anderson of Bellevue, Washington was killed while skateboarding near the University of Washington. Anderson apparently left his studies around 1:30 am in the University District to grab a bite to eat. Traveling westbound on 45th, he ran into the side of an articulated bus at University Way and fell under a wheel. He was pronounced dead at the scene after “suffering crushing head injuries,” reports the medical examiner’s office. The bus had a green light at the time.

Anderson was a freshman at the University of Washington where he was on the Dean’s List and a member of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. He graduated from Bellevue High School in 2007 where he was a leading member of their basketball team. Bellevue High School will hold a candlelit vigil for Anderson in their football stadium tonight at 8:30 pm.
