TRAFFIC ALERT: Lane-blocking incident at 5-way

3:47 PM: Thanks to the texter who tipped us about this:

The texter reports the “stalled vehicle” is a Metro Route 21 bus and it’s stopped because a passenger using a wheelchair fell out of her chair and was injured, so the bus might be there a while.

4:39 PM: SDOT says the scene is clear.

    I was the texter referred to above. Fwiw. Definitely a woman who seemed badly injured that fell during the turn coming from the bridge. The bus driver heard it happen and gingerly completed the turn (just 1-2 seconds) stopped the bus and went to her to assist. There had been a wheelchair user onboard up front where it happened. That said looking back I’m not 100% sure the person who fell was in a wheelchair and not in a regular seat.  I disembarked when another passenger asked for the door to be open.  Hope she gets the care she needs. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
