A motorist was injured on Wednesday evening after being involved in a motor vehicle accident with Sound Transit train in South Seattle. The motorist was taken to the hospital for treatment. No one on the train was injured.
According to a report on KomoNews.com, the motorist made an illegal left-hand turn in front of the train.
A KOMO News reporter said that even though the intersection is marked “No Turns”, drivers made left turns anyway.
Sound Transit has been running a safety campaign warning motorists and pedestrians that, “Trains mover faster than they appear and cannot stop as quickly as a car. “
It seems like Seattle motorists need to get used to sharing the roads with the light rail. Click here to read a Safety Brochure.
