1 dead, several hurt in crash involving hotel shuttle near Sea-Tac Airport
SEATAC, Wash. -- One person was killed and several others injured Thursday in a rollover crash involving a hotel shuttle near Sea-Tac Airport.
According to Puget Sound Fire, medics were called around 1:00 p.m. to Tukwila International Blvd. near the Sea-Tac Link Light Rail station. The crash involved a car and a Marriott hotel shuttle came to a rest on its side.
Authorities say a passenger car crossed the median for some reason and collided head-on into the shuttle carrying eight passengers, including the driver.
The crash left a 45-year-old man dead and two passengers were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The remaining four were also hospitalized for various injuries.
"I kept calling mom, but she didn't respond," said Jay Bielza.
Bielza says his mom was one of the people hurt in the crash.
"I'm scared; hopefully my mom doesn't have any bone fractures," said Bielza.
Officials say they are investigating the crash and working to determine what if any charges the driver of the passenger car may face.
