July 25, 2019

SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say one person is dead and seven others were injured in a crash involving a hotel shuttle bus near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

South King Fire and Puget Sound Regional Fire say the crash happened at about 1 p.m. Thursday at South 176th Street and International Boulevard.

Puget Sound Regional Fire spokesman Joe Root says one person was found dead at the scene. He says two of the seven people were seriously injured and that one injured person refused treatment. King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi Sampson says six people were taken to hospitals.

TV helicopter aerial footage showed a shuttle bus with a Marriott logo on its side.

Sampson says the bus was heading north when a car heading south crossed the median, causing the bus to roll.

Streets were closed and some light rail routes were halted until further notice.
