Seattle Fire Department Spokesman Kyle Moore said aid was sent to the intersection of 12th Avenue S. and S. Jackson Street shortly after 9 a.m. Officers found a young mom and her three children with minor injuries.
The mother told firefighters she was waiting at a busstop with her children when an approaching bus blew a tire. Debris from the tire or near the tire flew into the air and struck the family.
They were taken to Harborview Medical Center as a precaution, Moore said. It was unknown if the bus was a Metro bus or an area school bus.
The incident is being investigated.
