Dump truck sideswipes metro bus
Correction: July 24. 1:36 p.m.
The Ballard News-Tribune reported that the incident happened at a bus stop, however, that was determined to be inaccurate thanks to a witness report. The accident did not occur at a bus stop. The closest stop is at least a half a block up the street.
Around 8:30 a.m. a dump truck pulling a dumping trailer sideswiped a metro bus at the junction of 15th Avenue Northwest and Northwest 56th Street.
The truck was moving southbound on 15th Avenue Northwest and attempted to take a right onto Northwest 56th Street just as a bus was pulling away from a bus stop.
No emergency personal were dispatched to the scene but SPD officers were there to report the accident.
