No serious injuries reported in Seattle school bus/car accident

Seattle residents are well accustomed to seeing school buses on the streets. When parents put their kids on these buses they expect them to arrive at their destinations safely. Thankfully, this is usually the case. However, earlier this month, parents and school officials were almost certainly shocked to learn of an accident between a school bus and a passenger car. Luckily, no serious injuries were reported at the time.

The school bus and car accident in Seattle occurred at the corner of SW Elmgrove Street and 18th Avenue just after 9 in the morning. Firefighters were called upon to treat two people at the accident scene. The driver of the car, a 30-year-old man, was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. Seattle Fire Paramedics took a 10-month old female to Harborview Medical Center but only as a precaution. It was also reported that the responding paramedics evaluated seven children who were riding on the bus but reported no visible injuries to any of those children or to the school bus driver.

While the Seattle Police Department is investigating the accident, parents are no doubt relieved to know that there were no serious injuries. It is not known at this time if the police have determined who was at fault for the incident. It is also not known if any charges are pending.

Car accidents often result in serious injuries and even death. For those injured in an accident, a consultation with a Seattle area personal injury attorney is often the best first step they take. An attorney may be able to explain the options that are available to both victims and their families.
