Serious crash on I-5 Southbound in south Everett

Southbound traffic on I-5 in south Everett was blocked Friday morning by a serious Washington Bus Collision which left a man critically injured a man, said officials.

The crash happened at about 6:30am, near the Silver Lake rest area. A 30-year-old Everett man swerved his car into the carpool lane and was hit by a King County Metro Transit bus, said Kirk Rudeen, a Washington State Patrol spokesman.

Rudeen also said that the man was to be airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries.

The Seattle Bus Accident apparently was caused when the man couldn’t stop for traffic in front of him. His car hit into another vehicle, then rebounded into the HOV lane and was hit by the bus.

No one else was injured, according to Rudeen.
