Eleven people were taken to the hospital after a Sound Transit Express bus crashed into a concrete retaining wall outside a building in downtown Seattle Saturday evening. One of the passengers was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The crash happened just before 7 p.m. Saturday on the 300 block of Fifth Avenue, which is near the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Terrace Street.

Seattle Police Department spokesperson Eric Muñoz said the bus driver told responding officers the brakes failed and they swerved into the retaining wall. Seattle Fire Department spokesperson Kaila Lafferty told KOMO News crews at the scene the bus was traveling down Fifth Avenue and struck a building before crashing into the wall.
