UPDATE: Car vs. bus on Delridge Way SW

5:48 PM: Thanks to Matt for tweeting the photo, and to texters who also tipped us – that car/bus (a 125) crash is on Delridge at Dakota. No SFD dispatch so apparently no serious injuries. We have a crew en route to check the scene.

6 PM: Our crew says the bus is gone; the damaged car is off to the side, and traffic is flowing normally.

    I was on that bus.  Not really sure what happened.  We were stopped waiting for traffic to clear ahead of us when we felt a little bump.  Apparently the little Honda and Ford did not see the big bus in the middle of the street.

    Looks like driving while texting to me.

    Be interesting and possibly amusing to see the car driver’s cell phone log at the time period.I had a friend who once got badly rear-ended at a stoplight by someone who had dropped their candy bar and was fishing around on the floor for it  *while driving*.

    There was no citation for distracted driving or any other similar possible cause. However, Municipal Court records show a citation for driving without insurance. Whether that means the driver didn’t have proof of insurance or actually was uninsured, impossible to tell. – TR

    WSB. The law requires a driver carry a proof of insurance card in their vehicle at all times(while it’s occupied and/or moving).  No card = automatic ticket. If they take it to a magistrate and show that they have it the fine will be excused in most cases.

      I know. That’s why I qualified with, don’t know whether the ticket was for not having proof (I was guilty of that many years ago) or actually not being insured. Hefty fine – $478 ticket!

    Or they could have a insurance card but the insurance is not in effect even though the card says it is, this happened to me, I was rear ended exchanged info and come to find out she wasn’t up to date on her monthly payments. So a card doesn’t always mean they have insurance.

    The fine for the ticket may be waived but you may still be obligated to pay ‘court expenses’ of around $120 or more. I had that experience once..

Sorry, comment time is over.
