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.
