Woman in critical condition after being hit by King County Metro bus

Our Seattle bus accident lawyer recently learned that the Seattle Police department is investigating a pedestrian accident in which a 40-year-old woman was struck by a King County Metro bus on the 14300 block of Lake City Way Northeast in Seattle.

The bus accident occurred around 4:25pm and the woman was transported to Harborview Medical Center. Harborview is a Level III trauma hospital which serves the entire Pacific Northwest.

Police are investigating the cause of the pedestrian accident. We hope that the woman’s injuries are not too serious but it appears as if the woman was thrown up onto the passenger window of the bus.

Bus accidents are serious events for the entire community. Although accidents do occur, it is extremely important for an investigation to determine the cause of the accident to determine if it was operator area, the pedestrian made a bad decision or a combination of the two. Although King County Metro has an exemplary safety rating, so far in 2012, there have been more than 200 accidents involving Metro buses.
