Two people were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after a Lynnwood motor vehicle accident involving a Community Transit bus.
The HeraldNet.com of Everett reports that the car accident occurred on Highway 99 near 40th Avenue West around 9am when a car driven by Yollymar Delgado, 22, of Lynnwood, turned into the path of an oncoming bus.
Delgado and his passenger, a woman, were thrown from the car. Their injuries appeared to be serious.
The force of the impact caused Delgado’s vehicle to be pushed into a car driven by a 17-year-old boy also from Lynnwood. The teen complained of neck and back pain and he was taken for treatment at an area hospital.
Delgado most likely will be cited with vehicle code RCW 46.61.185 “Vehicle Turning Left” which states that a vehicle turning left within an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction.
It is really unfortunate that Delgado and his passenger were apparently not wearing seat belts at the time of impact. Seat belts prevent motorists from being thrown from vehicle which prevents very serious injuries.
