Bellevue Police are still looking into what may have caused a 48-year-old woman to be killed underneath the wheels of a King County Metro bus in Bellevue Thursday night. The woman, who was a regular on the Metro bus route, got off the bus at her usual stop at approximately 6:30 p.m. near Northeast 10th Street and Northup Way and said goodbye to the driver and other passengers. The bus driver began to drive away when, according to Bellevue Police Department spokeswoman Carla Iafrate, he “heard a thump, thump.”
The driver stopped immediately and found the Bellevue woman in the street, where she was pronounced dead moments later. Northup Way was closed for several hours for investigation and no additional details have been released.
This incident comes after a 51-year-old woman was hit by a Metro bus at approximately 8:30 a.m. Thursday morning. The woman was listed in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center with potentially life-threatening injuries to the head.
