A metro bus struck a light post on third avenue last week, trapping the driver and injuring the lone passenger on board.
Both the driver and passenger on the bus were taken to Harborview medical center for treatment.
The bus reportedly struck another vehicle traveling west at the intersection of spring and third street as the bus was traveling north before coming to a stop at the pole.
One person was also injured from the vehicle that was initially struck by the bus.
Metro has said that the driver involved in the crash was only working part time and was just hired late last year, but that the investigation into what caused the crash is ongoing, and there have been no announcements of citations for negligence at this time.
