What probably seemed like it was to be a routine drive for a Metro bus driver heading south on the I-5 express lanes into Downtown Seattle Wednesday morning instead turned into quite an adventure once it became quickly apparent the reversible lanes had just switched directions and he came face-to-face with northbound traffic.
Dellana Groen, a passenger on the Route 41 bus, told KOMO News the bus had just left the Northgate Park and Ride just after 11 a.m. and had started to drive onto the southbound express lanes at the NE 103rd onramp when the bus driver realized he shouldn't be going that way, yet couldn't back up.
I have nightmares about this exact scenario. Thankfully, nobody was injured. The rest of the story and pictures are available over at KOMO.
