Man hit by bus in Lynnwood

A Community Transit bus hit and seriously injured a man in Lynnwood, officials said. The Seattle Auto Accident occurred late Wednesday.

The as yet unidentified man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, Lynnwood police spokeswoman Shannon Sessions said. The man is believed by police to be a transient. Sessions said that as of Thursday, the man was in critical but stable condition.

The collision happened around 11:15 p.m. on Highway 99 just south of 164th Street SW.

Community Transit spokesman Tom Pearce said that although several passengers were aboard the bus, no one was injured.

“The coach operator wasn’t injured but he was shaken up,” Pearce said. He also said that the bus driver was placed on leave during an internal investigation and is being offered counseling.

Also according to Pearce, the injured man was not in a crosswalk at the time of the Washington Auto Accident.

During the investigation, the southbound lanes of Highway 99 were closed for several hours.
