Rapid Ride collision tops police blotter

By Matt Wendland

More than a dozen injured after Rapid Ride collision
14 metro riders were injured on Thursday afternoon, after an A Line Rapid Ride bus collided with a moving vehicle. According to the King County Sheriffs Department, the incident occurred after a minivan took what police believe was an illegal left turn in front of an oncoming Rapid Ride bus near the intersection of S. 190th St. and International Blvd. Though nine of the injured victims did not require serious medical attention, five of them were transported to local hospitals for medical treatment. Cleanup of the accident required lane closures but full use of the highway resumed just a short time later. None of the injured parties in this accident reported life-threatening injuries.

Fire destroys SeaTac commercial building
According to the SeaTac Police department, Fire Officials are still actively investigating a fire that is believed to have been started around 10pm on Thursday, June 5th. The fire was located on the 1600 block of International Blvd. Emergency responders arrived to the scene after receiving multiple reports of a possible house fire and discovered a vacant commercial structure engulfed in flames. Firefighters were able to contain the blaze before it spread to neighboring structures. Though the building had a reputation for being used by transients, no one was injured in the fire. Police are still actively investigating the cause of the fire and are asking for those that may have information pertaining to the incident to contact the King County Sheriffs Department.
