Two people were critically injured Wednesday morning in an accident on Highway 99 near Lynwood, according to news reports.
The car accident occurred around 9 a.m. near the intersection with 156th Street SW. According to Washington State Patrol troopers, a man and woman in a red Pontiac turned left in front of a Community Transit Bus, causing the bus to swerve onto the sidewalk. The then bus collided with the Pontiac.
Both the man and woman in the Pontiac were ejected from the vehicle in the collision. One of the victims reportedly was then struck by the bus, according to news reports.
The Pontiac then spun around, crashing into a white Infiniti driven by a 17-year-old boy, causing him to lose control and crash into a landscaping truck.
“The two in the Pontiac were rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The woman was listed in serious condition and was in the intensive care unit. The condition of the man was not known.
“The teen in the Infiniti was taken Swedish Edmonds Hospital for minor injuries. Two in the landscaping truck were OK. There were 20 people on the bus but only one had a minor injury and refused treatment,” according to news reports.
The accident closed down Highway 99 during the investigation. Washington State Patrol Troopers are still determining all the factors in the crash.
As a Seattle car accident attorney, I’m saddened to hear about this car accident. I hope all the victims in this crash are able to experience a full and speedy recovery.
