23 passengers were injured, 4 critically, Sunday afternoon when the Seattle Monorail jumped its track and plunged 38 feet to the pavement below.
Mike Walker, spokesman for the Seattle Center, said the accident is under investigation. "At this point, we have nothing to offer (the media)," said Walker. "We have crews en route the scene, and we're trying to get a chance to speak with the operator. We just don't have a clue what could have caused this."
"It just fell off!" observed Marcia Moore, a witness who was walking on the sidewalk on 5th Ave., almost directly below the monorail tracks. "I heard it coming, and, you know, you always tend to look up to watch it pass. I was looking right at it. It seemed like it started to bounce or hop a few times, then it just started leaning sideways. And then it just fell over on its side, all the way down to the street. Sparks were flying. I guess it hit that SUV down there."
The street was immediately flooded with patrons of local businesses as they ran from the shops.
"We figured it was an earthquake," said Adam Laskey. "We heard a rumbling, then everything started shaking. Then there was an incredible crash. Just incredible."
Police arrived within seconds and cordoned off the area. In the middle of it all they found Casey Jones, a passerby, pulling people from the inside of the train.
"He was like a human dynamo," admitted SPD Officer Paul Neilson. "There was this guy in the middle of all this mayhem---people screaming and clamoring over one another trying to get out of the train. There was smoke and fumes from burning wires. When we (SPD) got there, you couldn't even see inside the (monorail) cars. But this guy, Jones, was in there just shoveling people out. The last person he brought out was a seven year old girl. When the firemen tried to take her from him, he wouldn't let her go. Then he showed the EMT's that he was plugging a severed artery in her neck with his finger. He rode all the way to the hospital with her, and kept his finger there until the doctors could get a clamp on the artery. He collapsed at the hospital from exhaustion, but they say he'll be okay. You gotta respect a guy like that!"
At press time Harborview had admitted 23 injured.
