Two charter buses carrying approximately 80 students slid down a steep and icy road in Capitol Hill area of Seattle and crashed through a concrete wall and metal rail.  The front end of the buses dangled precariously 30 feet above the northbound lanes of I-5.

The bus drivers decided to travel down East Thomas Street approaching Melrose Avenue East and made a bad decision to attempt to navigate the slippery road which could have resulted in much more serious injuries if the buses had crashed down onto Interstate 5.

Tamera Vasquez, Stephanie Jackson, Talkeetna Setuckmarie, Zachary Blackburn, Nicole Maxie, and Dean Short were some of the passengers on the buses which were operated by Northwestern Trailways.  They and other students were involved in the Columbia Basin Job Corps program based in Moses Lake, Washington and were on their way back to the bus station for transport home when the bus accident occurred.

11 young adults were taken to Harborview Medical Center with minor injuries from debris and flying glass and another two, also with minor injuries, did not want to go to the hospital.  Often times, we see clients injured in a bus accident, car accident or other motor vehicle crashes who initially felt fine but later realized that something was wrong with their body.  A complete examination by your doctor or health care provider should be performed to rule out possible injuries and/or to determine the extent of your injuries.

The Seattle, Bellevue bus accident attorneys at Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC can assist you in finding a doctor or health care provider to properly document your injuries if you decide to pursue a claim against the negligent driver.  You may call us at 1-800-636-3676 for a free consultation.
