http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattle911...us-police-say/The incident happened about 12:10 p.m. in the 800 block of Third Avenue. Police say the bus driver tried to stop, but couldn’t avoid hitting the man. No passengers on the bus were hurt.
“There were quarters everywhere, all over the street,” police spokesman Mark Jamieson said.
The donation jar for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society had about $15 in change, Jamieson said.
The bus driver wasn’t ticketed, though police say they expect to do extensive follow-up investigation and collision reconstruction.
The suspect was rushed to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. Police did not have additional information about the suspect Thursday night.
The donation container, which investigators described as a jar, was returned to the business after the scene was cleared.
